When I Realize You're Gone

When I Realize You're Gone

This is a poem I wrote the day my boyfriend/fiance told me he is leaving in
three weeks for his first deployment.. which happens to be six months.

A kiss that I long for, only moments after you're gone- Leaves a sensation, no
words could describe. A hand touching my cheek, careening over my lips with the
grace of a butterfly. Every touch, more magical than the last. Flesh on Flesh,
Heart to Heart, it's more than I ever imagined. Your fingertips travel my
earth, your lips calm my every fear, the intensity in your eyes draws my being
closer to your soul. I can only dream of your soft skin, your gentle touch- the
whispers that ignited our eternal flame. Will our love stand the test of time?
Will our love grow stronger each day that we are apart? Do i know in my heart
that you'll love me upon your return? I think we know the answers to these
questions. Your leaving is tearing down the walls that I have built up for so
long. I have succomb to love. How will I live, when I realize you're gone.
