041908 Flight DL 855 Thoughts

i miss you
with a fearsome,
terrible,
blinding
ache
i cannot bear.

but, to bear somehow,
i must
stay away,
even act as if
i'm spurning you instead--
for now anyway.

until the ache
subsides
and i can
draw near you
again:

until
self-possessed
i can stand near you
again
without buckling
under the weight
of my own tremulous fears
and need.

i dream of the day
when i can love you
so fully and purely
without fear
nor doubt--

but until then
i can only struggle
to love you
as fully and purely
as i can muster
despite my fears
and self-doubt.
