He evades me

And hides in the shadows

Each time I yearn for him

And call out his name.


When I least expect it,

He reaches out to me

With smoke-like tendrels for fingers

Trying to grasp me

And claim me as his own.


I need him and crave him

For without him, I am diminished

A mere shell

Without a soul.
