Inexorable Want

Inexorable Want How do I find These sentences Written as they are In ephemeral ink Indelible lines Inscribed in my being Spectral yearnings It crashes me To rocks In unanswerable waves Swimming tidal To the inexorable Yet The implacable distance Confounds me Longing vent me no more In twists and turns And unmade beds Where crumpled kisses Dream on hot soaked cushions Leave me not To the ever restless Fumblings Quiet unheard of whisperings Of her name How do I find The collective alphabetic Of love unknown Yet Divulged by these The screeching banshees Of petal falling Corpuscle red They flow through my blood Unbidden Unwarranted Unwanted And so desperate How do they find me On such a precarious brink With the voltage And permission of electricity Rapine in all my singularity Hurricane she batters at me For all my will to resist I am Weak I cannot Help me please Lest I drown dark Brooding in forever’s need She is my quiet And ever sun set calmed Sea And I I am a tempest Left to bellow and blow Inside an hour glass In the confines of my soul Help me please Save me from this void ripping As she shreds every day Every hour With my unrequited returning To her arms Save me For I have found My life My soul companion So far from me On some so strange a horizon That the distance Between us Could prove to be My Undoing

The longing is so powerful, this just makes me scream inside - you must be with your love and now! Your words make it seem as though you are being ripped apart bit by bit so painfully, by the absence, the non-fulfillment of a destiny you know must be! I'm coming undone just reading this! Too many great verses, just overflowing with brilliance and energy. Love it. Love, Shar
