The dark comes roiling in on waves
Of some obscuring sand.
Tonight has only
The absence of touching hands to remind
Me of our intimacies.
I adore you from this my abyss of one
More night spent waiting.
The space between us is to
Vast to name,
Though its gulf will be overcome
Tonight it is infinite in blue.
Even the stars hide
From my melancholy eyes.
I remain implacable.
It is you I swoon for.
This night may go on forever,
If so I will abide the end of time
