Waiting

On a day where
    the rain
  attacks the windshield
only to be brushed away
    like an ill-timed rebuke,
yet caresses my face
    sweeping back my hair to unveil
  the intensity of longing caused by you
do you think of me?

My entire being sings for you-
My life resonates in your echoes.
    I will wait for you...
  will you ever come to me?

I dreamed last night of a kiss-
    that you leaned down to me
and covered my mouth with yours,
    wholly bound to me
  as if your tongue wrapped around mine
joined us more than in a marriage
    any lovers are.
Do you dream of me?

My entire being sings for you-
My life resonates in you echoes.
    I will wait for you...
  will you ever come to me?

When I first said your name
    it began to grow in me.
  On my breath
I hear the whisper of the words.
    My heart beats to the rhythm
of the syllables immortally
    impressing themselves on my pulse-
  in my blood.
Do you long for me?

My entire being sings for you-
My life resonates in you echoes.
    I will wait for you...
  will you ever come to me?

    Every stanza ending with a passionate question... tastefully yet powerfully erotic. You the sensibility of a true poet... I am a big fan, Keith
