Wish – Word of the Day

“To wish was to hope, and to hope was to expect.” Jane Austen, ‘Sense and Sensibility’

 

As I Crave You

My hope was tame,
too timid to hold me
as my longing felt as my feelings
were being pulled as cable from a shaft.
I’m dizzy,
and in my desire,
virtues fall away as old faded posters,
as time yellows waiting,
and the winds of expectation
push through me.
My longing is pregnant,
shamelessly exposed,
as I crave you,
as I crave you.

  1. “the winds of expectation
    push through me.”
    Well put, it’s some kind of pain and sometimes leads to it, if you come closer..
