what can’t I forget?

our flesh brushing against each other,
leaving mine tingling even after you are gone.

your spoken words, ever gentle, ever dear,
making me breathless, light-headed, free.

my hand in yours, grasping, caressing,
I revel in the strength, the security it gives.

moments of insanity, lost in your eyes
let me drown there forever, just gazing at you.

I could trace the contours of your face
close my eyes and do it from memory

I could whisper and call out your name
taste its sweetnees on my lips

all these I can’t forget.
yet all these I also regret.

circa 2002
