Shall I Confess To You Now?

Shall I confess to you now,
after all these long years?

Though my heart rebelliously beats
Pumping blood through unwilling veins
To a mind that, if it could, would
Refuse just delivery—

I wish I was dead

Your name arrives unbidden
When dread silence does descend
It is there upon my waking lips
And whenever distraction fails

I think about you always

With noble purpose I held at length
For such sweet submissive disposition
Would spoil me and end in ruin—
Broken souls require tether

I was not good for you

On summer nights I take to wonder
Your nostalgic notions on distant shore
Never to see, never to hear
Never to feel such love once more

Do you ever think of me?

And on winter nights, by crackling fire
Your naked body within the flames
Dancing, rousing pained desire
For our perfect carnal games

We had great sex though, didn’t we?
