Yours and Mine

There's an aching within, the deep longing of yearning,
Wanting to be with you. Not just flesh and blood,
Shapes and curves, breasts and thighs that are yours,
But the squeeze of arms and the embrace of hugging
Feeling the vibrancy of human touch,
Contiguous bodies electrifying each other
With the nakedness of skin that is yours and mine,

But also the sparkle of eyes focused on me,
The gentlest of smiles, that enigmatic wink,
The giggle, the laugh, knowing what's good for us,
The quickest of wit, the gentle disagreement,
The words of caution and those of praise.
They're gone, and all that's left is that deep longing -
Mine, and maybe yours, generating hope.
