You offered me sanctuary
comfort company an ear
listening hearing it
wasn't easy to decline
but now tonight right now
my needs more visceral
not words but together
lying intertwined
not in passion, not now
but in communion
skin to skin to flesh
speaking quiet words
to with flesh warm words
of timeless unity
for a time a recharging
time to walk out internal
knotted strained stressed
breath pressure released
and freed to return, yes
soon enough in time
but not today, or
tonight, or tomorrow
But no so here I am then
alone still bound with words
reaching out into cold
æther words incomplete
faltering but still a
gift in heartfelt thanks
for your offer far more
for your being alive
in this world
for being you…
