Hungered Darkness

a poem by Mary Mathew

A silhouette of light
Writhes through the seclusion
Of your dusky figure.
Step by step, I progress slowly
But you move far away
As I try to reach out, to touch,
To contour the closure of your lust~re,
Hoping against hope it will satiate
Your hunger.
But it only twinkles for a moment,
And then vanishes.

And I wonder whether it was your love
That hungered on your darkness?
