Love Song # 2


Your arms crossed and your knees drawn up, you lie –
your feet between my calves for warmth, my arm
wrapped safely round you. How I wish I could
make you reciprocate the thirst I feel;
instead I listen how your breathing gets
more nasal and more regular as we stay
until you mumble ‘sleep’ and turn away
and leave me sentenced to my own devices
and sometimes to a certain sense of shame –
another lonely quenching of the flame
you lit in me - but still I wouldn’t miss
this drowsy dropping off, nor the light kiss
you plant about my lips nor yet this warm,
soft sleepy sadness for a host of vices.
