On Yearning

I stare out

into blank

space:

 

heart heavy

eyes full

and seeking

and searching

and yearning

something to

soothe

the gnawing

the clawing

the damning

ache

within me.

 

how much

longer

need i

wait?

how much

farther

must i

tread?

 

heart heavy

eyes full;

a sigh

on my

lips

and questions

unanswered.

 

yet:

i don’t

think

i wait

in vain…

 

you will

fall

soon

enough.
