How Long

by Morgan

How Long

.

How Long the night Suspends my Waiting;

How dark the jet of midnight falls,

Shadows Begetting Shadows,

As my Heart Waits to Hear Your Call.

Morning Dries the tears of Crying;

Barren Kiss of Desert Wind may blow,

But Oh How Long the Night Suspends

This Yearning, Unspoken, that Blooming shows.

Darkness Kiss this Fainting Brow;

Moonlight Whisper, Sweet River of Sighs;

While I Wait, Untouched, Untended,

As Time confuses and mercilessly flies.

How Long the Night Lingers in Solitary Hours;

How Sorrowful I Wait with Bated Breath;

How Bleak is this Emptiness, Alone;

How All Consuming

Like death.

    • So very often the longing for love is all we ever have, so, although perhaps not entirely romantic, I think the depth of emotion is, in fact, filled with romance….LOL if that makes any sense at all! Thank YOU ever so much, for enjoying it so.

  3. Beautiful darkness. I loved it!
