My tears gather as a storm.
Unleashed...they flourish in the night.
And every tear is a soul prayer gained release -
a longing told across my cheeks.

I cry into the night.
I cry into the night...even as I dream your
reaching hand,
I cry -
towards your touch.

By dawn...my tears have dried.
I wake...remembering the reaching hand that
stilled the gathering storm.
I wake and remember your touch
greeting my every tear -
as they fell...longing for the taste
of your hand.

And each tear
Longs-
For a single
Tender
Touch.
I see your hand reaching.

And my heart cries on.

Right here to be deeply touched by this wondrous creation. Crying together is a peak in a story of true love. You say it masterfully.
Love, Margherita

(big hugggssssssss) This is so beautifully heartfelt, sweet friend, I know this feeling because I love to hold a loves hand for the first time and in my dreams she is always there but I always slip away! (wipes tears) This stings with yearning, sweet friend, this is sincerely lovely, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Eric, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Loved it!

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown
