Almost there

The words

Haunt and taunt

Me

Like memories

Of girlfriends

Who never existed,

Except for in My dreams.

Their touch,

So real,

But only

Within

My own mind,

My own dreams,

My own world.

Never a breath

Outside

Of me

And

My

Broken sleep.

I yearn

To hold them,

Nail them down,

To caress them

Into being,

Into loving me

And holding me

In their warm arms

And soft beds.

I need them,

As always,

Far more than they could possibly ever want or need me-

As always.

So close

To me,

Yet

Too far…

Too far

To hold

And love.
