I Burn for Them…

I Burn for Them...
I Burn for Them…

I burn for them,
each one an echo of exquisite moments,
not lost in time but marking its very essence,
and my dreams are not dreams at all,
those beautiful faces, loves I still abide,
each one so perfect, so deeply felt in love’s stride,
and there is no measure, no comparison,
just an uncompromising love for each and every life,
every love I’ve had in time’s embrace,
all haunting my consciousness,
like dreams but far more implicit
in their heart-felt truth.

Each one a face I know so intimately,
so familiar as if my own, and to touch their skin,
their fragrant flesh I’m so ecstatic, I wake to feel the wanting,
the realization of now, I’m so alone,
and love warms my heart to know
they are still here with me,
but I burn to be with them whole,
to kindle the bliss of each life so sorely missed,
so I try to hold onto every moment,
memories that are seared into my mind,
reliving all the loves I’ve had
and had to leave behind.

Lost in my dreams,
for that is when they appear,
I care not awaken for fear they’ll leave,
and drift I do within these realms long passed,
yet still alive, where I have fallen to life’s end,
and they survived,
and each moment with them is pure elation,
my heart so poised in afferent gifts,
I pray each time not to leave,
but at some point I am denied,
so I wait, each night, in high expectation,
hoping to find each one,
for they all attest the love in my heart.

In days that rise and fall in endless succession,
I wander the earth, in half consciousness,
part of me remains here, but much more is elsewhere,
in culminations of memories and truths
reflected in this time and place,
yet their essence far from here, in time and space,
and I lament the loss, the heartbreak
I have felt and feel for each and every one,
those women who own my heart,
who know me truly
and who cannot fade from my mind, my soul,
each one the loves of my lives, a story to be told.
