Two Strangers...

a cool bed, crisp sheets, tender arms, and you...

* * *

Nows [no. 4]

We introduced two strangers,

pulling cautious strings

and choreographing

a carefully constructed rapport.

Never enough for ourselves,

how could we be enough

for another?

I gave you someone

you could love and I took

in grateful exchange
the mannered lady

you had made for me.

So here we are together...

whoever we are.

And that painful process

must begin before long.

The desperate struggle

to get back to

who we really are

without losing each other

along the way.
