Am I a "couple" now? Devoid of
identity, an uncertain
entity, I'm shrinking away

Just a pea in a pod, incomplete
without my other half?
I've changed, contorted, un-snorted
my laugh, around you, now I can't think
without your reply, miss you too often
and sigh, wish you would kiss
me already, hold my hand,
I bury myself in the sand
when you're not around
Is that a way to live?

I'll confess I give in
to your desires, often I'll be the liar
the one who won't dare speak up...
Maybe I'll try now. How about
take your HAND off my breast
loosen that grip on my chest,

I think I might want to be free

..for a while, just focus on my
smile, is all that I'm asking.

Do you think you could try?
Take some time off, deny
yourself pleasure, yes I know
the measure sounds extreme,
but how will we ever be
souls to each other, friends,
not just lips, curves, senses?

In my defense, here's a world
of unknown. Now I wish you'd join me so
I won't be alone.
