Unrequited love & Absence

Today I share two poems inspired by young love.

Unrequited love

My heart aches with the pain of longing
for something I don't understand.
Maybe a fear I have of losing
the guidance of your loving hand.


Today I had to leave my love behind
... and how my heart aches with pain!
I toss and turn and cannot sleep,
I count the days till our reunion
and find them way too many.

I long for your touch, I pine for your words,
I want to see the beauty of your face.
How can a day filled with your fullness
become so desolate and bleak?
And empty of your presence.

Today my body had to leave,
but my soul stayed behind.
