You, I, we


With you

Head to head

Palm to palm

Knee to knee



Mere breath vapor

Condensed from the heat

Of your solidity


You will not stay


I sit

Knee to knee

Palm to palm

Head to head

With you


Long forgotten

Will you stay?

I feel you recede


You do not believe me


Forgive me…

Forgive me.



Lap on lap

Heart to heart

Cheek to cheek


We embrace


Not your tears

Nor my tears


Our tears
