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.
