    Longing

    Your kiss lingers on my slightly parted lips
    I can still smell your cologne in the air
    smile that overshadows like an eclipse
    My dreams of you are more than I can bear

    The way your blue eyes drink in my desire
    Your heart pulsating sensation in mine
    The touch of your hand brushing my shoulders
    Awkward gentle resolution undermines

    Differences condemn possibilities
    Tears for what might have been are shed and dried
    Longing gaze of farewell across the room
    All the unspoken words we think and hide

    The nostalgic beauty and tragedy of one of life's most consuming feelings captured with elegance and grace... I can relate to this AtL, well done!

    'Differences condemn possibilities' - WOW AtL - this says it all - in so many ways.

    This is skilfully metered, Alexandra, in your signature rhyme/near rhyme mix. The last stanza gathers to a poignancy that will resonate with many - I can picture this scene cinematically. I really like the image of the smile as eclipse. If I were a better poet, of the kind extolled by T S Eliot, I'd simply steal it 😉 it's that good!
