I long to stand
where you have stood
stand naked where you have stood naked
to feel
the lack of space between us
so close time quickens
and skin tightens
ah, to hear your voice
making love to my ears with your music
stirring echoes of what has been
what never was
to feel your eyes on me
examining me, contemplating me
seeing right through my façade
to breathe
from the same pool of air
inhale your exhale
deeply, I long
