an endless pool of memories

flows past me.

you ride the crest

of each breath and heartbeat.

lingering, yet I cannot see you.

I feel you in the very air

that caresses my skin.

I breathe deeply grasping to catch

that minute trace of you.

knowing that it will draw me in

leave me weak, wanting more. 

dampness spreads at the thought

of your lips teasing, tasting.

my dreams make you mine

to love and cherish but not possess.

you are burnt into my skin,

my senses, my soul.

I love you yet…

wish I could love another.


but yes.
