Kathy M.

Shall I write you Kathy…
water for a thirsty man… just beyond my reach
the potential for passion with you
presses thru the air between us

These months have brought no relief
for my fantasy and longing
conversations snatched between games
smiles that touched me to the quick

I feel the current between us
that only hands against skin
can release.

Kathy M. II

Don’t smile unless you’ll touch me,
I can’t bear to look away.
The feelings your smiles give me,
they just make me want to play.

Play in a dance of feelings
of skin and hands so warm
of sharing secret places
of stomachs glowing warm.

Kathy M. III

Come around again, heart in flames
going down again, before brown eyes.
empty response…you leave me no less

I risked, open and knowing,
and I cannot loose, doing this
I walked with elated anticipation and warmth
into her response
and the emptiness it gave me

Her compassion and friendship exchanged
for my passion
her reason and values arrayed
against my poetry

her brown eyes and warm skin
now so unreachable
In the warm and dappled sunlight
she told me how it was

life, press me as you will
my skin and my feelings and my heart
will stay open

I won’t turn away from you
or what you pass before me
These hands, this heart…
they will feel

I love, I hurt, I live
and I am real and I will be no less.
