Tension

slinking between sadness
and yearning
that yearning to belong
to have someone waiting
for someone to care
wrapping you up in
so tight embraces
one who will not let go
in this abode
which is also refuge
i find peace
solitude
the kind of
aloneness
that i want
but still
the craving rises up
the air
and i am alone
yearning for someone
to share this space
and i know i struggle
i struggle in every beat
of this lonely heart
and i let it be
let the sadness envelope
and subdue me
