I Have Begun

by Joanne Marisa Leow
i have begun

                to truly remember

(oh) your hands

       running 

              sl

                 slo

                 slow

                        slowly

                         across my back

and then grasping

                (gently)

        my arm across

                to hold (me)

(me) enveloped

        engulfed (?) in your long

                            longing

                            embrace

Then



        that pause

                         cheeks barely brushing

the hesitation


I placed my ear on your chest

                        to listen to your aliveness

                                        morevividmorevital

                                                        beatingsosofast

looking upwards

at your downturned

                face

                        smiling ever so sadly

you pushed the hair

                from my face

                                "resisting

                         temptation"

but (no) it shouldn't                 make

                                        a difference

but (oh) it has

                (so soft)

                                your lips

                                against mine

                                        straining

                                        upwards         upwards

                                                downwards        downwards
