Unable To Say Goodbye

You were here
For just a moment
Now you are gone
Leaving me
Unable to
Say goodbye

Enveloped within
Your words
Fascinated with
Your thoughts
Stimulated by
The musings
Of your soul

Emotion, physical urges
In your web
Entrapping me
Freeing me
All in the same breath

Heart trembles
With longing..
Soul retreats
To the depths
Of non-feeling,

Now, a simple existence
This black hole
Draws in the soul
Unable to escape
Endless days of longing
Have begun.
