Just A Few Days (Or: More Than An Affair) - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

I want to wake with your smell on my skin
To feel your body against mine as it has been
Your suitcase no time to unpack
The way it always goes - that's a fact

I know that you will have to leave again after a while
And our relationship is flexible and versatile
I already miss you although you are not gone yet
Your absence lingering over me like a threat

For once I want to keep you here with me
But I understand about your business and responsibility
In another world, another time and place
I want the two of us - our commitment to embrace

Your love for me you confess all the time
I wish holding you hostage wouldn't be a crime
I believe your feelings for me are really true
They reflect in your eyes all the way through

You stir my passions each time and more
Often I struggle for my breathing to restore
You tell me that one day we will be together
But first I would have to leave him like bad weather

What you don't know is that I only call your name
And being with him is by far not the same
But he is right here and will never leave me
You - as soon as I blink you're across the sea

I promise to come back to you each time you are here
I don't mind having you as my personal puppeteer
When I don't see you I just barely survive
You should know - only when you are here I come alive
