Comment on this Work


I still miss you
like light that has left its star
(Love and time
are tied in knots)
and sometimes
when the empty swings
remind me of you
(that genuine beauty
portrayed imperfectly by your smile)
My eyes are dry
but my soul weeps silently
hiding its painful melancholy
from the world around me)

You should have had
no recognisable taste
but your skin
enticed my fingers and tongue
into a blur of desire
and I miss you:
I miss having my arms
wrapped like a shield around you
and your soft fingers
tracing messages onto my skin
(Will I ever find
an understanding love
that will soothe the fury
of this hurricane in my heart?)
