Pieces of you unearth
in places we’ve been,
laughs we’ve shared,
all that clinged us together.

I crave to tell you
‘I miss you’
but it’s been awhile
since we last spoke.

These are only words,
but we’re kidding ourselves
and everyone else;
I feel the truth.

You once promised
to use me like you knew me.
I still ache for those
dreams once dreamed.

We now linger on the sidelines
keeping toes in the shore,
only deep enough
to not get sucked in.

Each time the waves pull away
the sand below us sinks deeper;
two forces pulling,
wanting, then distancing.

This unspeakable madness,
insufferable desire,
fed by a constant need.
