You are gone
even knowing the outcome
you aren’t there.
The pain engulfs me –
So why do I search?
I can hardly string words together
A disoriented soul
spawns a disorganized mind
Pleading to whatever god will listen.
You are still so much to me
more than the sum of your numerous alluring traits.
Always seductive, thought-provoking, stimulating.
and drawing out an other self
not known before
unable to be fully realized.
I was never more invincible
Than after contact with you – no matter how brief
Flirtatious, teasing, taunting
You sent me into the clouds where
I lingered, floated and dreamed.
but you are gone…
