soul mate

i long

to hold you

for an eternity

in unwavering arms

that embody home

as the shores

beckon the waters

and the sands slip into the seas

i long to hold you

so close

to my heart

that at the start we bend to accommodate

tickling whims

more than friends

through simple and complex dividends

how can i need

your intangible caress


your unseen presence

you exist only in my mind


broken fences

and cobwebs

i hold tight to our

projected picture of perfection

my heart feels

as if it will

explode or erode

before our eyes meet

although i am weak

i seek

with sore feet

the hands that understand my shape

when will we feel the touch

listen to those three words

manifest the thought

complete us lovingly
