, ,

When you harbor an attraction for someone, and you seek each other out, but can’t seem to connect. This speaks to that.

I keep coming
you keep leaving.
You come looking
I’m off doing.

At our most vulnerable moments,
we cannot find
what we seek.

One of life’s ironies,
is to have
that which we do not need,
and to desire,
that which we cannot have.

I pine for you,
and there is…
an incomparable sweetness
in that.
