Eleven forty-two

and I’m missing you

You said you’d be back between

eleven thirty and twelve o’clock

I hope you didn’t stop anywhere because it seems

The minutes are hours and I’m powerless

with longing.  I guess this means

I love you, even though now it’s

eleven fifty-two

When I think of you,

Longing rises in me like weeping.

This must be love

There is an empty place
where there should be your face
Be happy where you are
though it is much too far

Away, my love. from my embrace
Return.

I long to kiss your face.
