There you are again
haunting me in my dreams
we laugh, are holding hands
and I am stirring in my sleep
my arms wrapped around a pillow
not around your luscious waist
it makes me restless
coz no matter how hard I try
my longing for you leaves me breathless
lonely even, for the first time in my life
incomplete somehow with just myself
yet full of joy when in my dream at least
we share a kiss


No Words

There they are again, my tears, because what you say resonates so much, touches my heart in a way you’ll never know but probably understand without me saying anything. I just don’t have the words to express myself to you, admits the writer, the one whose love flows right into another poem to hold onto them, my feelings for you out of control. Before you I never believed in that bond I feel whenever you send a picture or a line. But your timing is so impeccable, throws me off balance for you always seem to know when to say what I need to hear or when something preoccupies my mind.


And then today I got my answer
my heart still aches for you
even stronger than before
“Hey, lovesick!”
someone yells in the streets
as my eye catches a motif

so I pause for a while
with only you on my mind
your touch a distant memory
your warmth against my skin
I feel your arms around my waist

my heart ripped out
my gut wide open
gaping like a wound

Have you ever loved someone so much it hurts
not in your heart but in your bones
rips you apart but lifts you up?
Have you ever shaken physically
at the sound of a voice reaching so deep
it leaves you weakened, unable to sleep?
Have you ever put someone above yourself to give them space
while all you need is them here in your arms
their absence killing you with every breath?
Have you ever had their picture captivate you
like a haunting dream
bringing you to your knees?
Have you ever felt you couldn’t breathe
’cause tears are overwhelming you
for the love you feel just runs so deep?



Today is not an easy day
It will get better, she always said
Then cheered me up with just a smile
And her cooking, fragrant for miles
But though I miss her every day
Her heartfelt hugs and warming tales
I’ve rarely missed her more than now
My soul a heaven full of clouds
Because I’ve fallen for you hard
Your absence breaking me apart
