I Miss You

I miss you,
you whose heart
ever beat inside my own,
deeper into me
than the deepest dream,
more fragrant
than my best rose.

I miss you,
you whose breath
in my own I felt
ever since
my lips knew the meaning
of wind and air,
of inhale and exhale
and the infinity that spreads
at the still point where they mend.

I miss you,
you whose dreams
like stars were ever budding
in the dark firmament
on the underside of my skin,
colouring my blood
with the flame of your passion,
nurturing my tears
with your sweet lament
and my smile
with the joy of your soul.

I miss you endlessly,
even when I’m with you
I miss you,
I miss you and I miss you
and out of my passion
a heat so intense
shall melt the universe
into a star in your palms,
a flower with which
I’ll adorn your dark, long hair.
