I kiss you with all my heart
and miss you when we’re apart.
I feel your touch upon my flesh
and hear your voice again, afresh.
You’re warmth against the cold.
Your smile illuminates me when the old
darkness surrounds. You wash away
the pain and monotony of my day.
I feel your palm so welcome and sublime
while your fingers curl and circle mine.
But I own fear beyond any words I can say
and loath an unknown moment, an unseen day.
What have I done, what crime, what sin
to fear in the presence of someone I believe in.
Am I judged and condemned to serve life
and daily draw across my flesh a knife?
I know some fateful day will see you leave
me to my desolate self, to wander and grieve.
