Kinds of Love

Thank You God for my family's love.
Thank You for all my loving friends.
Thank You gifting me to love myself.
Each kind of love is a very different.
I need all the different kinds of loves,
Like I need a vast array of nutrients.
Only, "loves" are emotional nutrients.
As starch cannot substitute protein,
One love cannot substitute another.
I feel thankful for each unique love.

There is one kind of love I still await.
I feel the void, nutritional deficiency.
As a hungry man dreams of foods,
She mists her way into my dreams.
I dream she's next to me, a pillow away.
I open my eyes to her sheer absence.
I close them again to re-envision her,
Alas, my alarm clock beeps too loud.

When will I share shelter with her?
When will our dates be unending?
