The question now is simple
will you reach for me again?
Will that long lost look in your eyes
ever set its sights on me?
Will I quicken your heart as it beats in your chest
and steal the breath from your lungs?
Will I cause an ache that can only be healed
by taking me into your arms?
Will you want me in that way again
without obligation and guilt?
Will you tear down that wall now between us
with a thirst that can’t be quenched?
Will that fire ignite in your soul again
will it burn all this pain away?
Will you ever meet me alone some day
on that rooftop from so long ago?
Will we dive into those waters where we once swam
naked and fully exposed?
Will we make love with reckless abandon
and covet that time alone?
Will that heart on the chain around your neck
get caught in our mouths as we kiss.
Will we be spent with exhaustion, yet ravenous
and hungrily asking for more?
