Dare I write to you of

My longing to see you

To show you how much I

Need to see you again

To kiss your smiling face

And feel you in my arms


Is it too soon to say

My body is going crazy

wanting you since I left

You there hours ago

So I could catch my plane

Was it sadness in your eyes


I don’t know how I will

Be able to tolerate

Waiting the months to be

Together wondering

If your body wants mine

The way mine so wants yours


The kisses—the wetness

All melting together

The embraces so tight

That it hurts but soothed by

Knowing desires of the

Strangle and the struggle


The mad passion, rumpled

sheets, dueling from sunup

To sundown to sunup

Days on end now tearful

longings for you you you

Dammit! Won’t the phone ring
