Night Search

by Willow

Lying alone
in my bed at night;
I search you out with my thoughts,
do you ever feel them?

Tender tentacles of yearning
unwinding from me to you–
moving like spilled ink
slow and sure
through time and space;
to find you in peripatetic discourse
or
unraveling ribbons of road as you travel
or
breathing the rhythmic slow dance of sleep
or maybe…
just thinking of me.

I take you wherever you are,
cracking through obstacles
like clam shells;
to linger on your eyes, your hair,
your mouth.
Fastening myself to you,
do you ever feel it?
Strong suction of longing
drawing you toward me,
warming, shortening, lighting
the cold, dark, endless night.
