Longing originates in absence
as space between trees
hollow in woods, abyss within
a heart, alone we wait
for messengers to follow
looking always for their arrival
to save ourselves only
in saving others, in turn
convictions are consulted
chosen remarks addressed
invested, determined to act
cure for days of yearning.
