A Gentle Longing

A gentle longing for your soft touch tickles at my fingers as I see lovers hold hands.

This longing crawls up my arms as I dream of embracing your beautiful physique.

This longing pulsates into my chest as I escape into a thought of body heat caressing my heart.

This longing waves over into my lips as I develop a murderous hunger for your sweet kiss.
This longing thunders into my eyes as I cry over thoughts of your beauty-
because I can not lie to my heart,
I know you are absent.
