The Hungering

Those every minutes
the essence of time
ever pressing in on
the fondness of heart
like threads,
constricting
always conscious of the
second hand intruding
with the grief of lonely hours
and furtive meetings for solace,
hungering for each other
as if we’d been apart for
a very long time.

  6. Lovely sound devices in this. I thought of the lovebirds in the hallway I have to shoo along who struggle to be separated between 50-minute class periods, though my teacher friend and I occasionally sigh, and say we wish someone would hold our face like that… ahhh, young love. I hope longing like you convey in these lines exists in long-term relationships, too, and with old people.
