On my pillows is the smell
of where you were that night
and in my mind is the memory
of where you were all night
And now and then I forget and
then remember the shape of
your body on mine - your weight
and how you held it above me -
and the way we kissed that was
nothing like kissing
more like discovery or tapestry.
I'm bearing scars, prizes, gifts and promises
I know now what yes really means
and yes and yes and yes.
I've got a new vocabulary and an equation
which is a bit like one plus one
but far more complicated.
Magic like snow, and just as surprising
when it comes, changing the landscape,
gone in the morning.
And a promise: to return, to repeat, to renew.
To know always and forever that one and one make more than two.
Fort. Da. You.
