To Have You Next To Me

Poem By Uriah Hamilton

Distant love
Makes us both cry;
So many disturbing tears
Fall like dying stars
Void of promise
And illumination.

If I were to have sex
With a beautiful stranger tonight,
My heart would only die;
I don’t want to taste the breath
Of any other woman
In your absence.

In a simple dream,
You entwine my arm
Through autumn streets,
I feel the coolness of the breeze,
We kiss on South Main
In front of a bookstore;

We wind our way
To a coffee shop
Or a wine boutique,
And I feel like a king
To have you next to me.

Beautiful. Truly. CJ
distance is tough but when you write something like this you can travel to your woman's heart with the speed of light! HBH
