It's Been a While

By
How long since the touch of a hand upon the skin
felt like the winds stroking the long grass?
Since a golden smile drew me to the unknown,
a firefly attracted to a warm glow?
Since a kiss aroused every taste bud
creating hills of sour, salty, and bitter sweet on my tongue?
It's been a while.
It's been a while.

How long since the sun rose in the east and set in the west
never once being blanketed by the jealousy of a cloud?
Since waves have licked the tops of docks
ignoring nature's call that they are bound to the sea?
Since stars have broken their dark curfew
and reflected in the eyes of children going to school?
It's been a while.
It's been a while.

It's been hours since I laughed and felt it in my bones,
And days since I have found beauty in something that breathes.
It's been weeks since my heart has fluttered,
Months since I've loved.
It's been a while that you've been gone.
It's been a while that you've been gone.
