Longing (Original Poem)

In the crush of swift lonelinessMy thoughts tumble about

Tossed with the winds of longing

Desperation lending sharp strength

To the scrabbling fingers
Not alone, but lonely

Empty smiles and meaningless exchanges

Friendly but never friends

How, how can we

Appear to touch each other

Without truly coming close?
Oh guilt, at the pain of longing

How can I be right

To want more than I have?

Yet I feel not that I want more

But that something is missing
Missing pieces from my life


In all the wrong places

Or just not having the eyes

To see.
