I Am Completely

by Barry Franklin

I am completely
incomplete without you.
I am wholly in pieces.
I can’t turn around
and not
expect to see you there.

I stand
listening to the sound
of my beating heart...

It cries out your name.

I walk alone
free from your presence,
imprisoned by your love.
Lonely am I
in these endless shackles
that lead far, far away
to you.
