LOVEPOEM (6)

my love, come quickly,
for a while we must put aside desire
in a little box, labelled: “Passion. With care.
Do not open until we are both sure what to do with it”. We must
hide it underneath the bed with your copies of New
Society and my hopes of tomorrow.

you know, we came so close to Forever, so
close to letting go that night as
our hugs became caresses &
our kisses deeper: in that instant of wonder .wandering
my hands became your hands, your body mine &
our release imminent. yet

for a little we must put aside desire ,think.,reassure
ourselves that ,though i want you
,we sleep together because nights are coldest alone,
because we are too inlove
not to.& because you are
my most .special
friend

(&, BECAUSE we’re friends i know one day
we’ll come across a box
beneath the bed
amongst the shoes & dreams and otherpeople’s tears
.then handinhand we’ll realise the words
untie the string,
unleash our little bit of passion on the World

    ah martin …

    i see you through tears of understanding
    that washes away the outer man
    and lets me hold the soul within

    thank you, thank you for this, dearest friend

    having found the box i’d hidden i don’t know what to do …

    I love the whole poem but that just gave my heart a tug.

    tugging hearts is what we do here
