Finding Clarity

I long to see beyond her beauty
to savor more than her caress
the world around dims and fades
while thoughts of her outshine
Her taste and her feel
skills and appeal
memories
of love
lost
gone
for good
Am I blind
why can't I see
what's in front of me
all these wonders ignored
this vast world away from her
beautiful souls beckon and call
Shall I forget her, to clear my sight..
