Always Your Darling

Tags: love, longing
Treasure what is possible
If ever there was someone

Deserving of love

It is you – smart, funny

Kind and thoughtful

Warm and caring

Filling me with affection

From an ocean away

We were both unhappy

Fate smiled that day 

When thrown together

You said I captivated you

Stimulated your intellect

Along with your libido

You made me feel adored

At a time when I was neglected

You called me your darling

Long conversations

That mended both our hearts

And though we belong to others

Something ineffable was there

Weaving between us

Connecting us 

You longed for affection

As well as excitement

Unhappy marriage is a cliché 

But real if it is yours

I craved the attention

Of a lover not enough present

To fill my heart completely

We shared our thoughts

Our dreams and fantasies

Experienced only

Through words and voices

Together – and yet not

And then it happened

I surrendered to your love

Intensity that could not last

But painful to give up

And so we remain 

Close without closeness

Our own contradiction

And I am always your darling.
