We Said...

by H.L. Nichols

We said, "Bye" when
I kept myself from blurting out
"This shit is hard"
I know and you know
Ain't shit to talk about cause
We can't acknowledge
What they think they know
So I act like I have no knowledge
Knowing the things I'd love to show [you]
But being inches from you aches  
Worse than being too far

So only these cursed words
Console the hole in my soul
My heart'll soon die torn apart and
With the hands of time on my mind
Loneliness overtakes me
When I fantasize about your size
Caressing myself thinking about
Peering into the depths of your eyes
The thickness of your thighs
The arch of your back
The nape of your neck
Being within you erect
Canvasses that birth your silhouette
My appettite getting wet
My wanton to touch your breast
Visions of you romantically
Or be beneath you when you find ecstasy
Wondrous is the moonlight in your hair
Orgasmic is the fire in your stare
And again I find that the hardest fucking part
Is listening to the life situations that confound us
The bull shit that abounds us
I hate this fucking reality
The first time my feelings
Ever made complete sense to me
And it is complicated by the fact that
I care
That you are not
I fucking care that you are not
With me
