Sometimes the curves are more than I can face in a public way. Sometimes I feel more intensely than playful prose will allow.
There is no reason we should be a pair,
nor any sense to the cadence of our friendship,
but for a night - a few nights - we were kind to one another.
Passionate, gentle, loving
I have never known kind.
And I am not sure what makes for forever,
but I know compared
to what made for my past,
you are better.
And gently, with no obligation
I love you.
