untitled   three

i think i’m
           falling
into friends with you:
allowing my affections leave
to flower
although i know you won’t be mine
(like all the rest)
still maybe in you i’ll regain
a little love lost on the way.

i feel i’ve found a
                newfriend
in you   .someone to think fondly of
speak fondly to, afraid though i
might hurt you   (like the rest)
by coming on too strong   .but
then you seem to like me,
made my world by phoning
           writing.
said you’d spend a day with me

(,a night….   i think i’m
              falling
into Trust with you,
or something deep as pillows
        soft
as your breathing   ,perilous
& tender
as one kiss i did not dream

and then you left me, like a dream
i had not kissed goodbye.
but on your promise of return
i think i’m
                falling
into love again.
firstvisitor, my newfriend
let me fall for you
gently,
requiring only gentleness.
