I Yearn Your Nearness

You're the fierce flame that burns in my heart, to keep me going, know that I (was) am the harmony that loved you from the start. I weep and mourn for the warm human lamb; tremble from the deep fearful hollow dam. None listen to my mournful lullaby. You laid a breath kiss, died a lover's sigh under heaven's steps in the endless night. Shill I taunt the gossamer wings and die? For I yearn your nearness, your touch, the sky. 12/31/2019
