Missing You

You
Inspire
Earnest soul expression,
Drinking in
To pour out.

And long after I’m done
Reading your words,
I’m reminded of you
Like sea salt on my lips
After a day at the beach.

Waves spill upon the shore
with an earnest ‘I missed you’,
the welcome home generating
Froth and rapture, short-lived
love wanes as sea and shore separate
like lover’s hands promising soon to return.

Absence aches and agitates
what once was cradled calm
Love, unanchored
borne on gust thrust seas longs
for torpidity in lieu of memories
of what was.

 

Hope,
too ethereal to comfort
on this longest of nights
As I wait to be beached
On your shores again.

 

(This one is for all the people who have marked me…. )
