Lovers… a poem

Screen Shot 2017-11-27 at 3.04.23 PM



I look for you in darkness

moments when my heart

skips beats, breathless

with longing

and I pray for you

to rescue me


I look for you in aloneness

moments full and complete

wanting to share

in that middle place

where lovers go

and souls mate


I look for you in Paris

while lovers laugh

hands held

dreams shared

memories made

never to be repeated


I look for you

but you’re not here
