i can smell you from here

every fiber of me wants you
every atom of my existence vibrates
in sync with the universe’s
knowledge of your impending arrival

i can smell you from where i am
i’ve been longing so much
anticipating even more when
i get to glance at you from the corner of my eye
yes. i see you from here.

i can taste the flavors you’ll be bringing
bitterness, sweetness
pain, joy, rest, and excitement
but it still kills me at this moment
at this hour
that you are not yet here

i can’t touch you
but i can feel you

i can’t hear you
but i can hear everyone else
who want you, need you

and when we meet
i pray you stay longer
or make time stop
because time with you
is precious to me.

please, weekend
please stay.
