Restless Without You
That first night you are away is terrifying
knowing I can’t be in your arms,
last night sweet remedy to lost optimism
far more than simple pleasure
you gave me your world with blue eyes
shining wise in moonlit serenade.
When skin traced skin together in unison
what we felt inside our lives
Could be described as staid romantic
yet the after-glow remains
the memory I hang onto this morning
knowing you’ve gone away.
You do have a certain power over me
wonder what’s in your mind
when you smile in my eyes, I’m crying
knowing you might decide
today will be the day I will not return
leaving him alone again.
I wonder sometimes if we regard the same
when left to our own
we forget that beauty far greater in mind
than that physicality
draws us together in such heated passion,
until our eyes in a fog,
look with certain grace upon each other’s want,
imagining only that illusion.
Last night, when I looked in your eyes to breathe,
I knew you’d already left.
