Feelings



How unprepared I am to have these feelings

Feelings I must survive for a time concealing

By several years you are my elder

Can I longingly await my love my shelter

Finally not high, but grounded ashore

Life is a cyclone of emotion, far from a bore

Without you in my life, living has been a chore

Is there a perfect part of you to fill up my core?
