619 Silent Promise [22 July 2004]

He fills me with a desire
that I cannot escape from.
The mystery of this attraction
remains ever so deep.
Allowed around him
more than expected,
do I find the soul yearning,
the heart begging,
for more of that time
spent so well in his presence.
Could I but feel justified,
feel as if I deserve a love like his,
maybe I would be free
of the constricting bonds
that clamp ever so tightly
when the body calls for him.
When the heart and soul cry out
in shattered voices,
for the warmth of his touch,
the look in his eyes
that can see ever so deep
into the reservoir of my core.
The longing keeps me moving,
afraid that if I walk away
I will never see him again.
In a silent promise,
of my soul speaking to his,
do I pledge my love unconditionally,
hoping that it is communicated,
however seeing it fail
in everything done in time.
I cannot quell this,
this what I have sought
for the entire length
of my life aware
of the exchange known
between woman and man.
