The Itch

by M. Douglas Hoss

For I have longed
Through Longing’s long
And longed for that
Which never longed me back
So, if I’ve done wrong
To what I belonged,
Then, it‘s because of the sense
That I so sorely lacked.

But senselessness aside I think
That the love I knew
Is still so very strong
And if my dreams, with me,
Still come along,
It is because that love
Still longs
To be with you.

"From Time To Time" by M. Douglas Hoss
