I Long

So I was inspired by akaBagguci's last post and yesterday's overdose of RocNaija….so I thought I was immune to his charm, since it seemed every girl in blogsville is interested in him, but after reading every post he's written I can see why….ladies and gentleman, I have a crush….lol….that's beside the point…. I haven't written a poem in a while, and so I hope it comes out as well as it is in my head…honest criticism folks, I will really appreciate that…. Unfortunately, it's about love again….it's been a while I've written something dark, I guess I am just really happy and for that I Thank God….Enjoy and thanks

I long for your warm embrace

In which I always feel so safe

When you wrap your arms around me, I am like a child with his favorite blanket

So that even when we are asleep and you move away, I feel your absence through the maze of my dreams

I long for your smile

In which I always feel beautiful

When you see me from across the room, take a minute to stare and then smile so brightly

Transforming your dark face, translucent, like the beacon from a light tower

I long for your kiss

In which I feel loved

When you take my lips in yours, carefully tasting and nibbling away at every inch

Like I am your favorite bowl of icecream, Ben and Jerry's Karamel sutra, chocolate and caramel ice cream with fudge chips

I long for you

For with you, I am whole

Your words edify me, your mouth appreciates me, your body testifies to me

I long for you, that I might find myself again, for you are my missing puzzle
