Without You

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


How I yearn for you,

when you are gone,

images flashing,

plaguing my mind

with memories

that warm the depths of me.

Each moment we are parted,

exists only in expectation,

the knowledge that we will be again.

Time slows to a torturous hum,

as if in slow-motion,

seconds like minutes,

minutes like hours,

until your touch brings me back,

enlivens my soul to knowing.

Without you I am lost in waiting,

my heartbeat shallow

and my breath a whisper,

words unspoken,

poised, void of expression.

My dreams dissipate,

and all that is left is you,

beside me,

my meaning, my reason,

my revelation.

Absolutely beautiful words - I could feel the aching of the parted lovers and then the joy of being together again at last.
