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?
