Diaphanous, just another poem !

Updated on October 27, 2012

I need to close my eyes in order to see you,

For you're no longer around. I have long lost you !

Remember when I said I never really loved

Any other woman than you ? Well, that was true !

I felt we were meant to be with one another,

But life had a different ending in store for us.

We went our separate ways. How long has it been ?

Doesn't really matter. But life's never been the same.

Through my dreams your body is tantalizing me,

For I never forgot your feminine beauty.

Eyes wide open in the dark my hands search for you

And there's nothing there but empty loneliness,

We both wanted a good life and I thought we had it.

Oh, again to kiss you, again to fondle you,

Just like we did before in times of happiness

When my mouth and my hands contoured a map of you.

You were my North and South, my East and then my West.

But without you around, the compass has gone mad.

I have totally lost my sense of direction,

And the ocean washed out our footprints in the sand.

I know I'm just fooling myself. But if I could,

I would turn back the clocks, reverse the calendars,

Erase the wasted time that has stood between us,

Take you back in my arms, say "Honey, I've missed you".

I have loved you so long, I have missed you so much.

I just know no one else will ever replace you.

But my tortured soul will always long for you.

Oh Lord, give me the strength to deal with my demons.

Damn, I miss you...

      Never would I hold it against you, I just connected with it... It's very powerful.
