Not Enough

Not enough
Pinterest image – source unknown

He yearns for the day her lips indelibly marked his soul

Their eyes held tomes of promise, spoken in silent tongues

That kiss ignited hope he had abandoned in years past

And the sigh that escaped her as they parted 

made his lungs ache, his heart quake

Today, just the memory of her is not enough to sate

the hunger stirred by those that have followed 

in her wake.
