Writer's Wednesday #7

Love's Cast

A peaceful shadow
across a moonlit room
your presence stirs my soul
Waking that which has lain dormat
since before my time began
Wakefulness a blessing and a curse
my heart's desire
a step outside my grasp
Taunting, teasing, never fulfulling
plead for completion
for that which never comes
Searching all directions
my heart breaking; soul shattering
realization of impossibility
I let go -- ye, holding on tightly
that elusive word
set within my grasp
My hand and love's hand
