Your Reflection in a Puddle

The lack of your touch
makes my fingers twitch,
makes my thoughts itch
and I dream of the most
confusing things.

Clap your hands as I
spin around and twist
this odd thing, a dance,
but if you ask me, I'll deny.

You, not being here,
makes me dizzy, steals my breath
but I'm relieved;
no more words to define.

Obsession walked into a wall
and I left it there,
now that I dare speak your name again
there's no reason to.

I just turn around and stare
at your replacement;
my new victim of lust.

I'm faking further attacks of feelings.
