affection withdrawn

after last night i will
face what i have to in order to be
found after so many years lost
evidence to the amount of the effort i have been putting in
coming in the form of final relaxation
only that true security can deliver
inside my chest something yearns deeply
on occasion aching for the closeness i
need and know i must have
when i feel happiest i feel love
introducing myself to the idea of independence in life
then taking that floor out from under my feet
having to accomplish the deeds of the day and
doing my best to clean up each evening’s feelings
reading these energies when
arriving back in my body each time
when you embrace me
night has become so much better than anything
