Wolves At The Door

Tags: love poem, sad
A dark vast expanse changes when your presence touches the air, 

even if it's fleeting, the last few notes of a song surrounding the 

fog I cannot see beyond,

I'm still waiting for your hands to 

break through this mist to find me and

move me in ways no one else can.

And when I wake up, all of my insecurities

close in, 

they are wolves at the door reminding 

me that when you're gone

I lay here and memorize the exact 

shape of shadows that your absence 

carves next to me in bed, 

haunted by the knowledge that your 

eyes trace along the moon's cold silver 

disk and wish to know where another is

While I only long to fill whatever space in 

your heart I've yet to occupy, 

that my touch could say all you'll ever need to know about love.

Knowing I might never be enough, 

I still wouldn't hesitate to give it all.

An entire universe changes when your 

presence halts my breath and becomes

my eyes, 

the ones I wish you could see yourself through the way I always have, 

I cannot see beyond your sleeping form, 

our heart's aching beating chambers

surrounding the knowledge that everything is fleeting.

We're just vessels in our time here, 

it's only love that knows how to pierce 

anything beyond the remnants of still

bone and tissue that we'll become.

But it's everything temporary about us that communicates this message, 

the lips softly closing over creases and curves, 

fingers running through beautiful tangles of hair, 

eyes illuminating our vulnerable skin unclothed skin in the dark 

when you enfold me.

And I know my insecurities are wolves 

clawing at the door when you're gone.

Haunted by the knowledge that another's

name can trace along the spaces in you I've

yet to map and understand. 

Knowing I may never be enough, 

I still wouldn't hesitate to try and be

all your heart will ever need to know about love.
