Critical Juncture

I sense you there
upon these waves of air
that never seem to cease
to blow my way
contemplating what you think
you ought to say to me

and I wonder what feelings
might play through your heart
at this critical juncture
this point of decision
in this night when the stars
and the moon all lie hidden

or is it that you sleep now?
content that you have done your part
not sensing that my heart
is calling out for just
one touch of love from you

A weightless feeling moves
right through my being
and flesh feels nothing more right now
than only numbness of unmaking
covering over all that future holds

for I sense you
on the waves of air
yet still I cannot seem
to find you there . . .
