A Long Time Ago

My love for you
So manifest in my hands 
Aching and pining 
Your body has forgotten 
I am but a stranger in its perception 
An intruder upon the nerve endings where our skin rarely meets 
Hold me like you remember my name
Eagerly embrace me once more
Hungry, pulsating and helpless
Sweet, tender and shameless 
I saw god in our love
And, in its grace
I have become crazy
