We Lay

W
We lay waiting
For our breath
To wash us back
Into this time
Time we had
Slipped
The burden
Of our isolation
Eased in our embrace
As we
Lay waiting
I wanted
To ask you
What you were
Thinking
But that was
An intimacy
Too far
I’ll strip myself
Naked, balancing
Your weight
Blanketing me
But the lightness
Of your thoughts
I cannot bear
It is an intimacy

Too far
