Her fingers long, soft-tipped
stroking his upper back
softly squeezing his

She kneads the nape of his neck
caressing the cup of his ear
trailing his five
o'clock shadow

She does not
will not

I am moved

His palm slides absently
from the small of her
over the swell of her
softly patting the upper
reaches of her

He does not
will not
how my hand
similar voyages

They are each young enough
to have a future
While my years reflect
excessive past
In sleep they

My nightmares
rage bitterly
Their hormones leap
and release
While my mourn
and remember
They look at me
never knowing
That I look at them
with envy
as they move
to life
While I to the
great perhaps

Roger, this is stunning in its passion, its longing and its painful beauty. But those of us who daydream know passion and pleasure too..perhaps new memories, new dreams. The future belongs to us all. katy.
