    I KNOW YOU, YET I DO NOT

    I EMBRACE YOU, MY ARMS ARE EMPTY

    YOUR PRESENCE SURROUNDS ME, I AM NOT WITH YOU

    I BURN INSIDE, MY FIRE YOU HAVE NOT FELT


    YOUR BODY MOVES IN RHYTHMIC DANCE, I HEAR NOT THE MUSIC

    MESSAGES HAVE BEEN SENT, MY LIPS REMAIN STILL

    MY SOUL CALLS OUT YOUR NAME, YOU GIVE NO RESPONSE

    SALACIOUS SHOWERS RAIN OVER ME, YOUR WATERS DO NOT FLOW

    I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU, TIME AWAITS NO ONE


    I HAVE WALKED IN YOUR PATH, YOU NOTICE ME NOT

    MY HEART DOTH PAIN, YOU TEND NOT THE WOUND

    I KNOW YOU, MORE THAN A LIFETIME IT SEEMS

    MY EMOTIONS CALL OUT FROM STRAIN, BUT THERE IS SILENCE, SILENCE, SILENCE

    ENERGY FORMS THROUGHOUT, RELEASE COMES NOT


    STAY AWAY DESISTANCE, LET ME KNOW AS I HAVE KNOWN

    I HAVE KNOWN THE GENTLENESS, YOUR SMILE IS NOT FOR ME

    I HAVE FELT YOUR SOFTNESS, I HAVE NOT TOUCHED YOU

    YOUR NECTAR FLOWS FORTH A STREAM, I NEITHER DRINK NOR TASTE IT'S SWEETNESS

    I BREATHE IN THE PERFUME OF YOUR SCENT, YOU ARE NOT NEAR ME


    I KNOW YOU AS I HAVE KNOWN NO ONE ELSE BEFORE

    I KNOW YOU IN THE DEEPEST RECESSES OF INTIMACIES

    I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU

    I BECKON FOR YOU, TO NOW KNOW ME

    to have known...yet, not known
    to have loved...but not loved

    we suffer the strength of our misery
    trying to be what others want us to be
    ACCEPTANCE--belonging--is a basic need
    that sense of others, upon which we feed

    'til one door is left ajar
    and we love that one from afar
    touching...but not touched
    overwhelmed by senses and such

    to have loved...yet, not loved
    known...but not known

    KEEP WRITING, POET.

    the river floweth.

    Much appreciated!!!!
    The River Doth Flow
    The Thirst Will Be Quenched
    The Coolness Shall Refresh
    Life Will Flourish.....
    There's a saying that if we seek we shall find and if we knock, the door will be opened..
    I say if we do none of these, we will never truly have lived...
    Take The Leap.....If we don't we'll never know what might have been....
