Like an acrobat flailing for a just out of reach trapeze bar
I grasp desperately at each sliver of time spent with you.
The thief of desire selfishly yearns for the precious jewel
Of moments spent near you.
My shallow breath gives away the longing
That lives to hear the aria in your voice.
In my youth, the pursuit was the goal.
But that thrill cannot touch
The completeness of sitting near you.
Allow me to share a silence and compose myself .
Never end, that is all I ask. Never end.
