Aching

It is

Especially

In the silence

And stillness,

That the aching

Returns

With a vengeance-

The aching

To hold her

In my arms

Again,

Or to feel her

Pressed against me

And trembling,

To touch her

Lips to mine

In breathless

Kisses

Without words.

Like an amputated limb,

The dull ache

Lingers and haunts

Each waking moment,

Looking to that place

Where something-

Someone-

Is supposed to be,

But there is

Only the ache.

Sweetly,

Painfully,

Deeply-

The ache.
