I.

I see
You in your favorite
Summer dress that
Insinuates those subtle curves
I so dearly miss.

II.

I hear
Your voice
So soft it soothes
When you speak
To me by phone.

III.

I taste
Your skin
Of honey and oats
When that sweetness hits me
So many miles from you.

IV.

I feel
Your skin so soft
Even in my lonely hours.
Away from home.

V.

I smell
Your jasmine scent
As I pass those plants scaling a
Roadside wall.

...

My five senses aroused
Even when you're not around

So dearly I miss you
As do my five senses.
With you I want to be.
That's what my senses are telling me.

Nice job.

Very sensual. Passionate as well. You allow the readers to use their senses along with you in anticipation of something intangible.
