My deepest longing

What I really long for…

is to be touched as I was once touched

with adoration

and desire

and

passion

like a slow burning

ember in a fire

left to die.

 

What I really long for is…

to be celebrated

and honored

and

cherished

by a knowing glance

and piercing eyes

all the days of my life.

 

What I really long for is

a time

when I felt

free

to explore

to just be

living life with pure abandon

releasing myself

from the frantic pace

of a life

lived without purpose

with a drive to accumulate

and amass

what cannot

be kept.

 

What I really long for is…

to feel the pain

that sears my heart

like a knife cuts

through a

luscious piece

of fruit

to its deepest core

dividing it

in half

releasing its precious

juices.

 

What I really long for is

to travel to the heart

of it it all

to immerse myself

in a land

where

intersections cross

divides

and divides

create

intersections

and where

I am a bystander

roaming

amongst

the carnage.

 

What I really long for is…

to heal the wounds

in a world

where hatred runs

rampant

and

goodness

is hidden

beneath an exterior of greed

and ideology

and

ego.

 

What I really long for is…

to find the purpose

hidden behind

a false

exterior

living deep

within the interior

enrapturing a shuttered heart

encapsulating

a longing soul

calling

desperately

to be recognized.
