Like Butter On Toast

My Love…
I know you, but have no first-hand knowledge. I feel you near, but far away. I have held out for a long time always believing in something I can’t explain. As sure as sunrise you’re waiting for me… somewhere.

From “Water for Elephants” by American/Canadian writer Sara Gruen
live-your-dreams-my-dream-is-23986887-1600-1200I want her
to melt
into me,
like butter
on toast.
I want to
absorb her
and walk
around
for the rest
of my days
with her
encased
in my skin.
