A Maiden’s Yearning

6040-holding-hands-in-bed2

The long cold night has done me worse

I feel your skin but then I burst

I open my eyes, my pain I nurse

I see nothing again but the world in reverse.

I stretch my arms; there’s nothing beyond

My bed is empty; my pillows a pond

What for do I need this body to respond

to silent pleas…

If to emptiness my heart is to succumb?
