Helpless

I can’t see you, I can’t touch you

I lay in the sun and warm my bones

I slide my hand in the grass and pretend it’s you, it makes do

I think about the potential to build and destroy, about growth

you work, my mind is on you, what are you seeing

what are you holding, what are you thinking

the whole world makes me wait for you

I can feel you on my breath, closer than so far away

how wicked and unfair to suffer such torture

my longing is stretched

I am thirsty for you

I sleep and I’ll wake again when you are by my side

looking at me, and we have a few real moments

to last me a while longer
