Want

Whispering silk
Shimmering stars
Tears fall
From darkened eyes.
Pain that stabs
Cutting in half
A pain
Understood by few.

The slightest touch
Reminds me of you.
All I want is what I can't have.
Why are these choices
So full of hurt?

Whispering silk
Shimmering stars
Tears fall
From darkened eyes.
Memories unbidden
Springing to life
Unable to escape
My own heart.
