Being In Love

…When you are highly sensitized to love, when you vibrate deeply, sexually, bodily,   …the being is enlarged, its capacity highly increased. —Anaïs Nin

I miss being in love, that sacred Logos
between a woman and a man, a goddess
and a god, between two souls unmasked.

I miss the smile on my lover’s face
when she sees me. The joy of my heart
in return. Our first touch each day.

I miss being in love, waking up in the
embrace of another beautiful day with
no attention given to the weather.

I miss wishing you goodnight as
your body softens into the fold of my arm,
our last kiss before moving into dreams.
