Do you sleep with her...?
even as you dream of me
and all the love we shared
reaching for our state of
ecstasy yet once again.

How unendurable,
this pain of separation,
when she is just what
stands between we two.

I can make no sense
of what you do
or why it is you say
you love me too;

Then turn around
and walk away
yet worse, walk back to her,
when I await you here
with all I am to give
in willingness.

So long, so long
we searched to find this love;
yet now that it is found
you choose to lose
yet once again
and send me in a tailspin
from which I struggle to arise.

But rise I must
and find the trust
to just go on
believing love is bound
to come again . . .
