Your words is all I have,

But it is not enough;

The proverbial half,

Better than none, as I surf

The vastness of the web;

Caught like a fly, helpless

Waiting for the tide to ebb

While I lay listless.


I hear your voice in my head,

A whiff, a whisper-

Faint, an echo from a distant shed,

Transient, ethereal, dapper

And then it’s gone;

Like a dream of the night

Lingering, at the light of dawn,

In the deep recesses beneath.



I see you in my mind’s eye,

A pencil sketch in a scrap book;

Blurry images, but coercing a smile.

If your words are you, then your look

As portrayed by the artist that is

My mind will be that of royalty;

Strong features with pouty lips,

Grave eyes that command loyalty.



You are dark, my lady,

Shrouded in mystery;

I wonder about you daily,

Fighting bouts of misery.

You tease me, like a butterfly;

Bright and cheerful and hovering so nigh,

Taking flight as I reach out to hold you;

Elusive, and yet ever desirable.
