Prior

You used to tell me that I made your feel more
loved and desired than you ever had
not just in sex, but in emotion and feeling
I walked today over some of our old paths
where we held hands in surreptitious affection
where we stopped to kiss and whisper love
where we laughed when we thought of fucking
in the alcove at the church or beside the creek
and the bench where we did
on the couch where we first kissed
and the bed where we used to lie
your skin as pale and soft as white satin
and your hair silk against my shoulder
You used to tell me I made you feel more
beautiful than anyone ever had
and if I did it’s because it was true
that to me you were the most beautiful
thing I had ever seen. And so you remain
You told me I made you feel more
special than anyone ever had
and if I did it’s because you are
even if you turned it all off like a switch
