    It’s late,
    and the simmer rain has placed
    me in an unfamiliar space
    alone
    in my bed
    without you
    - your hands
    -your
    touch
    -your words
    and the words you know convey
    -R- confusing
    because I read love
    but I never heard words
    only actions
    actions now placed on hold
    and now love - love hurts
    and this morning’s sunrise hurts
    -my eyes
    -my heart
    -my hands that still reach out to you
    -I can’t feel you
    -see you
    -be near you
    now I hardly smile until I read you
    and your picture burns my eyes
    like the fires of time
    like the fires of my despair with lies inside my heart
    inside my bed
    inside my eyes looking at seasons pass
    smiling as I read you
    smiling as I
    I want to see you
    I want you to speak to me
    softly n words that will penetrate my ears
    ease this confusion
    I have found
    while existing without you

    this is talking to me, now!

    whew!

    Awesome, the emotions spilling from this piece, and the questions that will remain unanswered in my mind. But oh how wonderful it is to ponder! Tantalizing!

    Thank you for this Poet!
