Two People

The unfamiliarity of your touch

And the hoarseness of your voice

Has awaken me once again

 

So long we have shared the same bed

Still you feign your loyalty

To this…woman

 

My soaked pillow

Squashed under my head

As I lie next to your anxious body

 

“You’ve lied,” you said

“You’re sorry,” you said

She means much more to you

 

“I’ve nothing,” I said

“Nothing left!”

Nothing more than aching parts.
