My nights were endless;
the beating of rain
reminding me of all
that I lost.
My hope exchanged
I surrendered beneath the
weight of unhappiness,
my soul suffered behind
I met you from a distance;
I found you interesting, the fool
within me willing to ignore this gem.
You were tender poetry; my spirit
Frightened by the notion of falling in love
again; I needed to hear your voice, to know
you from beyond the veil of
an intriguing premise.
That moment of clarity;
removing the ambiguity that choked
my heart. This feeling of absence defined
by your missing touch.
I need you.
