Sea of Touch

The body makes love to the body and leaves me on the other side  

I listen to the breathing that echoes in the room and I feel like the intruder
The sheets touch the blanket of skin and I feel rough  
The voice of the other says this- this is making love  
I close the ungrateful eyes and picture the rain  
Convince myself this touch is just as pure, just as great  
I count the seconds til I forget the structure of my own name  
As the body cums  
And as I come to back into the body  
All I feel is nothing- 
But the sting of sweat in my eyes  
And this is enough the silence reassures me, This must be the love they sing of  
My bed left a sea of empty  
Body an abandoned ship,  
Stripped clean of all its use  
Left bare with its skeleton  
This must be it  
This- this is love
