I long; I am
by Sally Hanan 7/04/2008 / Womens Interest
I long to hold you
I long to hold you to hold you and wash through you
I long to hold you to hold you and wash through you and cleanse you
of all your guilt
and to love what is left--
the core of your existence
that I used to live in.
I long to whisper in your ear
I long to whisper my words in your ear
I long to whisper my words in your ear, the words: I love you.
I love the girl I made
I love the girl who loved me back
I love the girl who welcomed my presence
I love the girl who loved holiness
but she has chosen another master
and I step back
I am the rejected one.
