your embrace… your silence

i am awaiting your embrace… your silence
behooves me in this chaotic palace, my mind,
an emptiness where i feel for one subtle
sound to convince me i am not alone here
in the dark, behind this curtain where i have
closed my eyes and dream what i dare not conceive
beyond the boundaries of truth… in this shadow
world are silhouettes juxtaposed against your
frame whose shape i thread lightly with my fingers,
careful not to disturb what solitary strand of hair
remains against your back; so close i am to your
touch, i do not want to rattle you, have you
discover i am not of the flesh you had in mind
