    Touch me
    Deep inside my soul
    Mold my fingers to the gleaming curves
    Of the pen
    As I bleed thoughts unto these blank pages
    Let me breathe the breath of you
    Caress my empty thoughts
    Stir my feelings
    Until the cauldron boils over
    Make me feel the love of you
    Muse mystify me
    These words are meaningless
    Without your inspiration
    Creativity is devoid
    Without your kiss upon my cerebral lobe
    Let me hold you again
    Unite us in infinite bliss
    Of a timeless union
    Make me love you again
    As I once did
    In the dark days when I prayed for you to take my soul
    Taste my tears
    Nights when I whispered my deepest fears to you
    I entrusted my spirit to you
    When the world became too much to bare
    I cried on your shoulder
    As you stroked my pain
    Taught me to form thoughts from simple words
    You gave me a voice when I was dying
    Let me drink from your rivers again
    Do not turn me away from the warmth of your embrace
    Make me need you again
    Give me a purpose for my pen once more
    Do not leave my soul in the cold
    I shiver from the desolate winds of your disappearance
    Why are you hiding from me?
    Where must I go to find you?
    Shall I quote sonnets to the sun?
    Sing melancholy melodies to the moon
    Slip similes between sheets of poetry
    Murder metaphors as a sacrifice to you
    Alliterate until the taste of words is too rich
    Silence my soul and let you speak loudly
    What must I do to invoke your presence in my life?
    Shall I offer solar incantations to the Universe?
    Shall I move the Heavens and Earth?
    Shall I lie in the darkness and slit open my wrists
    Pour my blood on the pavement of urban jungles
    Shout from the tops of abandoned buildings
    As you make a mockery of me with your unrelenting silence
    Shall I banish the light just to feel your shadow again?
    You were my comfort
    My safety
    My courage and confidence
    You spoke when the quiet strangled me
    Forgive me for spurning you
    When you awoke me in the middle of the night
    And still I slept
    When you danced inside my head
    Yet I refused to write you
    When you murmured in my ear
    And I tuned you out
    When you shouted in anguish
    And I locked your screams in my mind
    When you wept
    And I refused to let the tears fall
    For every moment I crucified you
    Because I felt you failed me
    When in reality it is I that failed you
    You never stopped loving me
    Please guide me back to you
    Restore my faith in you
    Teach me how to hear the voice of God inside of you
    Poetry
    Show me how to love you again
    Love God again
    Your words
    His breathe
    My Life
    Make me love you once more....
