sehnsucht

i’m addicted to the longing of you,
the sight of your eyes, the sound of your voice,
the feel of your body pressed against mine
leaving me with no other choice

but to crave the things i cannot have
even as the scent of you still lingers on my pillow
as I lie here thinking of you on a sunday morning
half-listening to the wind blowing outside my window.

for this familiar ache you continue to tease out of me
is a gift i cherish every single day,
a reminder that i still breathe, i still love…
and i still miss you long after you’ve gone away.

sehnsucht - German word meaning a longing, a desire for something unattainable
