Forget Longing

"The act of longing for something will always be more intense than the requiting of it." ~ Gail Godwin

that time common caress formed something high
around you to address touch with a sigh
thrown pleasantries! thrown pleasantries!
only float inland in degrees
ever true pulsations land easily
thrown pleasantries float breezily

those which are lost differ not more says you
half touch does not blister any more too
forget longing! forget longing!
want for nothing, gain everything
be able to bloom messily in dreams
forget longing, for eternity screams


  1. i think on some level forgetting long ing is good, mostly for material things, but cling tight to that passion...

  2. Very wise, Corinna. How much we humans miss of what we have while longing for what we'll never attain. Gail Godwin is one of my favorites.

  3. Beautiful. Although I think that there's a certain pleasure in longing.
