Apparition

I was already
in love with the idea of you,
– a patchwork of broken dreams
a plethora of tumultuous sensations
a kaleidoscope of swirling textures – 
much before you arrived,

I had you
put together in
my mind’s eye – a fleeting,
fragmented ghost,
soft like rain-filled clouds
held up by streams of rain.

you made me restless then
craving to consume you…
and now, having seen you
you’ve transformed from a fading
apparition, a figment
of my imagination
into someone real.

and, I ache evermore
restless and consumed by you.
