Ode to Longing

I long...
I long to

slip and fall,
walking the tear-washed
green carpet,
sprouted overnight,
through many a
long nights, in fact;
too long,
I long...

To fall...
Run home in the rain,

wiping my tears
and muddy pride,
to the hot brew
in a steel bowl,
it's always steamy,

ready for me
on a cloudy day;
the fall...

I long...
For I am
too sure-footed to fall
in these insignificant puddles;

have too little time to cry,
too much of anger
to fear the stare
from those eyes
that taught me to love;
to LOVE...
