an unnamed longing…

Posted on August 9, 2013


it’s urgent…

this feeling,

this wanting,

this need

it’s screaming inside me

begging, pleading, scratching

but only if it would give a name

there is no pin point

no north to follow

just a longing for a faceless something

a lighthouse’s direction

just too far in the distance

waves threatening and crashing

it ticks and taps and waits

haunting my dreams

ruining my sleep

and claiming my days

almost tangible

but completely out of reach

a mild form of crazy

constantly pestering

continually and relentless weighing on my mind
