Naked Body of Dreams

Will I See You

Without a face or name that I would know
you haunt my dreams like darkness in the day,
a ghost that hope implores my soul to show
its spirit, voiced from whispers that I pray.
In solitude I wonder if you ache
like me to hold an absent lover's hand,
or search the crowds until your eyes mistake
me like mirage above a restless sand.
Would I become the finish to your race
or would I be the prize you doubt to touch?
Do you persist to hunt for me apace
or falter, as often I do so much?
I've wagered all the longing in my heart
but fear my love will fail before its start.
