    How long is it since our parting?
    How many lifetimes did amnesia blind me?
    How many signs has it taken
    to awaken to this longing?
    How starved I have been,
    stuffing my emptiness
    full of unfulling substitutions
    whilst all along my thirsting heart
    has lain wilted in the desert, hallucinating.

    This pain is so deep
    it scratches my very soul into action.
    I can stand this insatiable loneliness no longer.
    I am so weak
    and yet in my weakness I find such strength.
    Though my hands be bloodied and scratched from life's thorns
    I will crawl to you.
    Though my feet be split and blistered
    I will keep walking to you.
    For there is nowhere else to go
    and to turn back now would be worse than death.

    Was it I forgot you?
    Did I grow these thorns?
    Is this desert of my own making?

    I beg you to quench my thirst
    I beg you to quench my thirst
    May I find rest in your black waters.

      It is truly amazing how strong the pull of love can be and the many things we will find a way to overcome in order to bathe in love's glory once again. You ask some interesting questions in this piece and as you seek to find the answers my best wishes make the journey with you.

      This is a really beautiful and well versed item that describes longing and the desperation that comes with separation very well. You are a really talented write, Kate, and I will be back to read more of your excellent verse!

      I really love this. It describes my longing to be with my husband. I will send this to him with your blessing. It is amazing how deeply you have struck a chord. My only suggestions would be for the following lines:

    I can stand this insatisiable loneliness no longer.

    Is this supposed to be insatiable?

    This line does not flow very well with the rest for me, im not sure if it is the typo or the line itself. Perhaps it would read better if swapped the sentence a little ie. I can no longer stand this insatiable loneliness. And the only other thing Im left wondering is how you find strength in your weakness, is it love that drives you on? I feel if you added that it would make the piece more complete but they are just my thoughts. stormy

      This is a very strong piece and it is that it covers many lifetimes. The pain and loneliness but yet, the feeling that there is something there to RE-MEMBER.

    I enjoyed the format and thought you did very well with this!

    love,peace,joy&smiles to share
