In the Craving
What affection do I crave,
if not that of a woman,
a woman of grace, of elegant poise,
of a heart felt openness to truth,
and a passion worthy
of life’s most afferent avail.
And if one such beauty appeared,
would my life be rearranged, transformed;
oh yes, I’m sure of it, far from this
single, alone recluse that wields words
like the launch of clouds
upon an infused golden gloaming.
And what would I say to welcome such change,
if not the blessing that it would be,
the humble invitation to pervade my life
like a lilting summer breeze,
the warm comfort of a winter fire
and two souls exploring the limits of bliss.
And so I entreat my dream love to find me here,
to follow a soul with beauty in its eyes,
and a heart open enough to want more,
to commit to love’s will and find peace
in the arms of life’s passionate embrace,
and to live life without fear.
