I wrote this when I was in my mid-twenties, for one of the men who only remained in my life for a short period. Wherever you are, Benjamin...this one is for you.

To be human is to endure

the humiliation

Of a love that might have bloomed

But for a drought in the soul.

In my twenty-six years of

loving and growing

Your black eyes were the first

to reduce my shell to shimmering splinters.

We are in two opposing planes of living...

but still

The thought of you angers and excites

reducing my resolve to hot molasses.

To say goodbye before we said hello and know

I will remember your hypnotic gaze

Long after one more myself

has replaced you.
