Missing you - a poem

I Miss You


I miss you.
I miss your warmth;
your blue eyes
enveloping me
in a rush of heat.
My heart pounding;
my blood pounding
and rushing to the surface.
Exhilaration all at once.
I miss you!

This made me think of the old saying about separation makes the heart grown fonder, although I don't think I quoted that quite right. I loved the poem and the strong desire is palpable. Beautiful poetry.

rahul0324: Thank you for reading and commenting. I love the photo also. When I found it and looked at it for a time I had the same reaction to it as you did. It is mezmerizing and suddenly exhilarating! It conveyed the emotion I was looking for and you got it! Thanks so much for taking the time to give your input.
