Nothing Else


today might be described
as brain weary drink a lot
of water day

I’ve gotten half of things
half done and the other
half not done at all

my focus was gone
earlier and now the
day is gone

as I sit here recovering
from a few days of
high activity

and my massage today
I noticed some oil
still on my arms

immediately I thought
of you and that it is
your touch I long for

nothing else

Twilight


our camaraderie
is both stronger and different
than that of others

our love
has been nurtured by years
apart never together

that will make our coming
together a hope against all
hopes

making us one in spirit
always if our love must
remain apart

no matter where life takes
us I know that the twilight
of our love will never come
