saudade

there has always been a certain nostalgia for the future in loving you 

something I have never had but somehow lost 

saudade, the love that remains, is your word 

“a pleasure you suffer, an ailment you enjoy”

a love you can not sink your teeth into

and depletes you with a fleeting grace
