A sudden need to reach out and touch you;
for I cannot understand the power you hold.
Feeling helpless, I wander until that very
moment you are near.

Embrace my being for you and only you know
how to calm me, sooth me, fulfill me into
some form of existence I cannot understand;
I cannot not grasp.

Your light reaches my emptiness; occupies my soul
to a point that overwhelms me, but completes me;
for I cannot understand the power you hold.

Stay near me; I fear that I cannot endure the
isolation and confinement of my torment inside.
Touch me, hold me, consume me; give me light;
for I cannot understand the power you hold.
