I want you

Soft and subtle like a baby’s breath 

Your body in motion 

My thoughts racing just to think of you

Only of you

Hours like days pass as slow as years 


I can’t sleep

My dreams betraying me

Calling to you as my body trembles 

Across the room or across the universe 

I want you


Your eyes gaze through me

Into our bed 

Tossing and turning in the sheets

Waves like an ocean of passion consuming us

Drawing you close

You pulling me in

Under a blanket 

Like so many stars in the nights sky

Without a moon

and I hear you whispering 

I want you
