Street light slanted through the half pulled curtain.
She took my hand and put it to her breast.
“It’s you I want..” she smiled, ” As for the rest..”
That she should need me then…to be so certain..
Yes. I have memories which sting me yet
even as they console – the way she purred
against my neck when we were done…no word seems apt..
so long ago…I can’t forget..
