I am bound...

I am bound to my lover's touch
his touch, feather light 

and yet 
so deep

time has passed
yet I am still bound
though he is no longer here
 no longer near

I carry him with me
day and night...
night and day...

there is pain in his absence

oh my love!

It pains me to live without
his touch
and I linger here in memories
of what it felt to live in his embrace

I carry my love
as the seasons pass
their glory only serves to remind and heighten
what was...

A little space in time
a fleeting moment
a love ~ beautiful

yet a love not meant to last

 I am bound to my lover's touch...

you've got long arms!
and you deserve him, his touch.

maybe you are closer than you know.
i think yes~

To live without some kind of love from somewhere--is like a real alcoholic holding onto his bottle, which has long been emptied.

What a horrible moment in time.
And love IS everywhere, almost like--all we must do is Go and Collect i

Love and Peace, Callit.

so poignant... but at least we are left with the memories, which can never be taken away...

I am liking muchly, how you have opened and closed her with the same line 'I am bound to my lover's touch' A line that resonant within after your words written are read.

Calli, your poem is full of longing
and love. As always that special
vulnerability is threaded through
each word. Beautiful.
