Lover Dreaming

by Joanna

The essence of you lingers

In the air around me

I feel your fingers

Interlaced with mine

As the day begins to bleed

Through crimson curtains

I feel your heartbeat

Sounding in my chest

As I exhale

You are far away by miles

Yet your being is near

I love the very thought of you

Making moves within my bounds

Stretching me past them

With gentle urging

Pushing forward

Into the chasm of light

That you have opened

In my sphere

The channels run high

As we toss ourselves into the currents

Breath on reserve
