Another Day

by Stephanie Ivey

My heart beats..
When I think of you and
My loins tighten,
at the thought of your touch.

Your touch...
That heals me and
Feeds my soul.
Strengthens  me for another day.

When the phone rings...
I hope it's you.
Disappointment surges...
When I know it's not.

The days lengthen...
And I don't hear your voice.
Not even a text...
Breaks the long day.

Then out of the blue...
I hear from you.
Saying you miss me,
And will see me soon.

And my heart takes flight...
While my loins grow tight.
And I think of your touch,
And I know I will wait...
Another day.
