Only Remains

Updated on March 2, 2012

The threadbare weave covers me again and even though I protest

I also can not deny, nor do I truly wish it to cease forever

It matters not where or what

a night sky

foreboding clouds covering the moon

or sultry breeze

only adding to the perspiration formed on my brow, beneath my breasts

On busy street

bodies barely touching

your scent crashes into my day

leaving me weak with longing

to see, to touch, to be with

Neither sleep nor morning sun bring respite

the ache remains, and crests to heights almost unbearable

with no intended attention paid

no memory formed with conscious thought

I dream, it is so innocent and calm yet

you appear from round the corner and hurry to my side

lightly kissing my cheek, hello

the nearness takes our breath

all that we do is in unison, hands entwine, we embrace

I feel a tear and touch my face to find I am awake

you are not here, it was not real, only a ghostly intruder

even to my dreams

yet I do not ban you from these visits

though all is pain, it is all the remains

of you
