Today

by Kimberly M. Thompson

Iím missing you today

There have been glimpses of your smile...the intent stare of your eyes...

     the windows of your soul

The electric stimulation of your touch...like a therapy session now in

     progress

A touch that reduces me into liquidity

 

Iím missing you today

Thinking of your early morning runs and pressing those familiar buttons

     which will lead you directly to me

Thereís a softness, a gentle breeze that calls me deeper than your words 

     express

As though a shell of the sea is placed to my ear and the imaginary rush of the

     ocean flows into my canal

Calling me...Calling me...Calling me

 

Iím missing you today

A quiet strength yet vulnerable heart that you guard with the essence of you

Your softness gives me a gentle place to land

Like the down of a feather escaping from flight...landing perfectly

     balanced on three exquisitely pointed blades of grass

 

When Iím missing you like this

I am craving your presence like a drugÖneeding an intravenous fix

     wanting to feel the rush

These pieces of dreams dance behind my closed eyes

I just want to reach out and touch you

Virtual reality

 

Iím missing you today

Just beyond my fingertips you keep a reservoir waiting for me

Youíre barely there...I see your silhouette in the mist

     shrouded in mystery beckoning me...to come

And I will
