Until This Pain

Lustful dreamer through the length of days
Longing until this pain controls me
Molds me,
Crafts and directs my tears

Settling my soul in the light of a sad harvest moon
Knowing there will not be a touch
Or a kiss,
Or a gasp of yearning to soothe my ears

Still all of my senses hunger! Can it be?
Is it just the heart that feels emptiness?
Oh, empty touch,
Hollow eyes and cavernous longing for her scent

But I bear the grief of her, of love denied
Longing until this pain controls me
Holds me,
Leaves me empty, dry, and spent
