338 it’s this hunger [12 September 2000]

it’s this hunger
burning deep within me
that never sleeps
relentless in its ferocity
to look up
seeing a face
smile with the light of love
shining bright in his eyes

an endless thirst
to dehydrate me
to feel strong arms
tighten around me
holding me close
to his chest

a need to be fulfilled
but seemingly
taking a very long time
to find me
hearing his voice
call my name
across the miles
on a phone
or across the room

so I wait
seeing you only in dreams
feeling you surround me there
hearing whispers of your voice
knowing you’ll be there
I don’t know you yet
but I do know this
already with a strong certainty
that I love you
