Awkward Adolescent Adoration

my
awkward
slightly rounded
shoulders miss your
slightly dangling apelike arms, and

so
does
my weirdly
elongated emaciated torso
i want your warmth here

please
do
not leave
me alone again
i miss you for some

reason
even
though i
just saw you
yesterday and two days before

some
strange
longing has
wrapped me in
its unforgiving and frigid embrace

sometimes
i
doubt that
my affection for
you equals yours for me

but
other
times i
feel like this
wishing badly you were here

favourite
there
is not
much i would
not do to see you

in
this
moment i
want you to
tell me you love me

then
hold
me close
against you and
promise i will be safe

What a lovely form and such a romantic poem too. It looks great on the page, I don't however feel that awkward adoration is solely an adolescent concept...love catches our breath at every stage. Smiling at you, Tai
