I press my face to the pillow

And with a soft weary sigh

Allow the blankets to embrace me

Slowly, I let the day go

To be absorbed by my loving mattress

Freed from limiting concentration

And the confines of stress

My mind wanders where it likes

Since I'm quite fond of you

It tends to meander your way

In the dark of night

My thoughts screaming into

Silence

I think of you,

And I long for you.

The pillows remind me

Of your soft breath on my cheek

The blankets hold whispers

Of your arms carefully encompassing me

The burning of skin and skin that I seek

I see you smile in the stars

Full of life and glow

I see your heart in the moon

Quiet and stunning, hinting of secrets

A mystery that intrigues me so

In the dark of the night

My thoughts screaming into

Silence

I think of you,

And I long for you.

Do you know how my heart begs

For a single deep kiss?

A burning moment of affection

Placed on my lips

My fingers are empty

Aching for a purpose

Perhaps soft hair to mingle in

Or a charming, weathered hand to hold

My hips are cold, a fruitless bowl

With no gentle palms

To fill these lonely valleys

With the sweet warmth of simmering coals

In the dark of the night

My thoughts screaming into

Silence

I think of you,

And I long for you.

Imagining you beside me

Is a delicious torture I can't resist

I close my eyes and you're here

Strong arms holding me safe

A low voice murmuring sweet things in my ear

Gentle heartfelt kisses on my neck

You'll take away my every fear

And when the sunlight appears in the morning

I'll wake with a smile on my face

Softly kiss you awake

And watch the eyes I love come open

In that moment, there is no time or place

I'd rather be

As you hold me close

I'll fall a little more for you

In the dark of the night

My thoughts screaming into

Silence

I think of you,

And I long for you.

Yes, this is when I crave you

You're so far away

And this is when I wish it wasn't true.
