Aging In Imperfection - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

I left you…………
Your innocence – that I could have easily pounced on
Your nubile lips that taste strange from a distance
And your flawless irises that leap towards me
Yet I’m a man enfeebled by your absence
Lingering like a lonely cactus in a dessert
Soaked of the succulence of love
Hoping that the distant sun
Will evaporate every drop of moisture you left behind
Where deep within the darkness of my heart
I can picture a rare glimpse of the moon
Where you exist as a perfect circle
Far beyond my reach
