Why

The great secret
is that
you are

on
the
edge
of
my
mind

on
the
tip
of
my
tongue

all day
the whole
day
long

and it breaks me
not to taste you
not to breathe
your air

after
all
that
promise

O boy. Rachel, I left a comment on "Nameless III" meant for this poem, but it can easily go for both.

from a gifted human being

to another...

HerbisOrbis, please don't do anything extreme now, hehe! I'm so glad the poems reached you.
