Indulgence

Silent stares, hidden touches
Your eyes on me constantly
Every moment is choreographed
Every action inevitable

Say how it will be and it will be so
I am at your mercy
Marooned without strength to resist
Pulled by your magnetism
Charmed by your presence

You speak to a part of me
I feared long departed
Awakened a sleepy yearning
For something beyond reality

A time and place that stands still
Where only you and I exist
Lost from the world
In frozen moments of rapture

I’ve found myself in you
Discovered a meaning to life
That holds all promises
Exceeds all dreams

Yet is destined to live
For only a season
Blossoming like a fall flower
And dying in the winter snow

Heartache

How can I explain to you
that time stands still
when you are not near?
My heart beats in isolation,
A lonely drum tick on a darkened stage

Each breath is a pitiful agony
Every blink everlasting torture
My thoughts are not my own
My limbs refuse to move,
Withered, brittle and frozen

I hang onto a fine thread of hope
Frailly tethered to reality
Will you return to me?
When will you be by my side?
How long my love ‘til you are mine?

I need your touch to awaken this dormancy
Your kiss to restore my subsistence
Although we are elusive strangers
You hold fortress in my very core
And I cannot live without you

Please don’t leave me in limbo
With such remorse and yearning
I stand incomplete and broken,
Aching for your acceptance,
And longing to be made whole.

Lusting, longing, wanting

I want you
Every minute of every day
You haunt my every thought
Taunt my every desire

I want you
In ways that words can’t explain
With every fibre of my being
I crave you, taste you

I want you
You engulf every sense
Until I am overwhelmed
Until I hanker for your touch

I want you
Exclusively, wholly, completely
Everything good, everything bad
I want it all

I want you
Not in another lifetime
Not in another scenario
Now, today, this moment

I want you.
