Not anymore

He's away from me I know,
not in space
but in time...
and yes, I'm lonesome,
but not for him,
only for the way he made me feel.

I wonder if skin has a memory
as well as the mind?
I can't remember what he looks like anymore,
only the way I felt
when he touched me.

There was a time
when I loved him so much
just the air
would hurt me.
It was frightening
to need someone
that violently.

But I'm finding that
it's even more frightening
not to feel that way
about anyone...
