Nothing changes
the trail gets colder
memories distant fragmented
Not much chance right now
Not much dance
not much coping well
or at all
Can't have nice things
certainly not what
or anything
I actually want
it's not allowed
not possible
Not needing a lot doesn't mean
that nowt is ok
starvation narrows
other's needs come before
doesn't asking as refusal
just unneeded embarrassment
not for me but the poor sod
asked who tries to be polite
in their refusal dismissal
Hold and be held
touch and be touched
sharing skin and skin shimmering
warmth sliphold friction flesh
meeting flesh from holding firm
to casual hand resting upon
breathing light life
