The heart tug

I am like the moon living in company with the dark
i cannot see with my eyes 
I sense , feel , live and breathe in the darkness 
but it's impossible to truly touch that which is made for me 
sensing is all I can do
i want to see , I want to hug my complimentary counterpart 
but I can only feel him
energetically and spiritually surrounding me 
equally at a distance 
this close isn't enough 
wanting more scares me 
I want to be able to reach out my arms and hold him so closely 
but it's impossible when I am the moon and he is the dark 
and our hands are not able to touch 
stuck by our sides, craving to be able to reach out and physically touch one another 
close yet far , like a warm breeze on your skin 
light , lingering, strong yet quiet 
but not solid enough 
so I simply sit with his essence 
feel it all , ache for a caring caress 
and crave him to be by me in sturdy form

Thankyou !! 🙂 Yes , yearning . I thought I would use the idea of the moon and the dark ... Because they are made for each other ... And yet their is a distance there ... They do not have hands and there is no way of them giving each other a proper hug lol ir atleast they need to find a way lol . It's like the pull between two people who are not physically together but feel each other in spirit

Hi Charlotte...What a wonderful metaphorical write full of imagery of that longing when two cannot be physically together....like the moon in darkness...a pull and need that cannot be felt....but sensed, which can be very frustrating and painful to the heart.  I understand...You chose a great way to express that longing through and original illustration of this separation.  I feel the pain through your words.   Love n Hugs, xo ;)
