yearning

yearning- 2/13/2020

i yearn for years
yearn for a missed pathway
i stumbled across.

too frightened to cross
too frightened to pass
it’s stony ridges and cracked in creases.

broken pavements
a stepping stone
instead i chose to walk alone
and then for years, you were not here
i have yearned
for a thousand ages

now it feels much too late
i saw a recent photograph
of your face.
Also a beautiful woman.
you have clearly moved on
without me.
