Somehow I always felt you close
Sensed a truth
A knowing
Like a knot unraveling
In the dark indentations
Of my
Lonely self
Are you there,
Bashful soul?
What is this sigh
That yearns
Beneath my breath
That lurks at the edge
Of my hopeless whisper?
Is it you, Silence?
Is it your whisper
That I long to hear?
Is it your stillness
That I had turned away from?
Is it your flesh
That I must now reveal
My naked self to?
Are you the one that I yearn to kiss?
