River of essence
slide over tongue
trickle down gullet
perfusion of warmth
I crave you
or something like you
or the effects of you

Grasping, pursuing
doesn't work

I try something new
rest in it
let it come
let the tendrils stretch 
across my face
like a slow outstretched
long and lean, boney

unfurl on me
imbed in my flesh
become part of my microcosm

I'll breathe
and cast aside doubt
are you friend or foe
neither or both

but please
just stay

because by now
your abdication
would just rip 
and be
the devastation
of me
