Love Poem: My Home

My Home

there's an ardent desire
burnt upon the umbrage
of my mind's deepest thoughts

on fields of green
i sit lost in the strokes
of time's hands
yearning to feel you
like a whisper of wind
as it twirls my hair
in its gentle breath

i long to strip
layers of life
that bind my heart
in the torment
that moans
through the valley
in heavy sighs

i want to gambol
like fragrant petals
in summer's warm caress
not suffocate on smokey breaths
in winter's colorless drab

i suspire beneath mist of dusk
laden upon my skin
and suffice in the bitterness
of your absence
through the traces
etched upon my face
as the years pass by
without you
