my love affair with words

the longing hand

on February 6, 2015

the longing hand

reaches out

and closes around

my heart

the longing hand

searches me out

as I hide within

the crowd

pretending to be


pretending to be


I can never

out run it

I can never

hide from it

the longing hand

will always

find me

the longing hand

will always be

closing around

my desperate


I have resigned

myself to

accept my


I’ve begun

to crave

it’s touch

the longing hand

so painful

the longing had

so harsh

so cruel

I crave the


I crave the

sleepless nights

I long for the

longing hand

as it longs for


I long for

the longing hand

closing around

my heart

for it is only

in that moment

in that familiar


that I truly

feel alive
