We'Ve Been This Distant

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Did we not say goodnight
When the clock tick tocked
And you could not stop
Watching it pass us in silence?

And you torcher me
With whispers licked upon
My listening ears...
When I'm not near you!

Did we not say goodnight
When the clock tick tocked
And you could not stop
Watching it pass us in silence?

And you torcher me
With whispers licked upon
My listening ears...
When I'm not near you!

You squeeze my hand.
I see the tears begin to roll.
You've been touched by another man?
I see that!
That does not have to be told!

'Yes...
I confess!
And I want you to do the best
To understand,
When I needed love from you...
There was nothing else to do
And no one else to give it to,
Since yours was not available...
And,
That part of my love for you was! '

Excuse me?
You want WHAT from me?
I can't believe we've been this distant!
