Stunned at Your Vacuity

We spent the night together 

Wrapped in each other’s arms 

We tumbled through the universe 

Kept each other warm 

.

.

.

We melded together 

Until our skin became one 

And when we relaxed under the stars

Our breath sang songs until the sun 

.

.

.

In the morning 

I starred deeply into your eyes

All the sight

Your sight 

To see 

.

.

.

You opened your mouth to speak 

And I was stunned 

At your vacuity 

.

.

.

Caught between 

Should I stay 

Or should I go ?

.

.

.

Should I pick 

My shame up off the floor ?

.

.

.

Or should I give in

To my body 

Wanting more?

.

.

.

Could I have a future 

With one so vacuous ? 

.

.

.

To what extent 

Do thoughts and words fulfill us ? 

.

.

.

As I painfully kiss 

Those lips goodbye 

.

.

.

My heart still aches 

The painful truth

I cannot hide
