Remembering a Few Warm Nights

I watched you with mine eyes,
your hair like burnished gold
catching the last strains of the day.

I am an exile
from the wonderland
I once knew.

A wall as sure and strong
as stone and steel
has come between us.

All the wanting still remains,
but I cannot reach out my hand
and touch your firm, strong flesh
and you will not reach for me.

I must wait
I cannot do otherwise.
The memory of your
every kiss
every touch
lingers insistently in my mind,

Apart, I am just a shadow
slipping into doorways.

It will be like this forever

I must wait
I cannot do otherwise

I watched you sleeping last night,
your face a mass of shadows
your hair a tangled graveyard for my dreams,

A thousand times
I reached out to touch you

but stopped
stopped short.
