LOVE LOST
(12/9/06)


he was
coming back up
after going down
half kissing
her body
half wiping
his face
as he worked
his way toward
eye level

she was
crying

"you
haven't done that
for me
in so long"

she was right
but had been
in the habit recently
of peeing
just before
joining him
in bed

the taste
of piss
was a bit
of a put off
to oral sex
to say
the least

he rolled over
on his back
shoulder aching
from supporting her
lower half
for so long

she turned
toward him
and he could feel
the tears
rolling down
his arm

at a loss
for words
as usual
he lay there

after
ten minutes or so
she stopped sobbing
and began to slide
her hand
down his chest
and across
his stomach

it was
about
time
