454 Reaching [05 January 2002]

I reach,
as do you
across this endless void called time.
If you are there,
speak to me.
Tell me of you,
teach me of all your ways
and accept me as I am.
For in you is my future
as well as a part of my past.
My lips wish to know your name.
My tongue your taste,
my skin yours.
If only you would be here,
taking me into your embrace.
Holding me there in the darkest of times
when the fury of my storms
break the walls I built to keep them in.
All I know now is I desire you
with every single part
that makes up me and who I am.
I have dreams that you frequent
causing me to close my eyes in remembrance of you.
You whose strength matches mine,
whose desire challenges mine,
who encompasses me in all
that you are and will be.
