Missing You

The night is dark
as a fallen angel’s heart
& the wind cries mournfully
as a brokenhearted child
outside my lonely room

I toss & turn
in my solitary bed
missing you, wanting you
Skin on fire
with dreams of your touch

I could walk
for hours through the dark
streets of loneliness
a cat in the night
but it would not ease
the pain of loving you
when you are not there

Can you hear me
crying in the night?
Do I walk in your dreams
like a ghost with eyes of flame
& desire, burning from inside
with wanting you?

It is not the wind
Calling outside your window-
It is the one who loves you
reaching from her dreams into yours
Missing you
