Intimacy Lost

The space creeps up, at first unseen,
Where once the clasp of youth had grown.
Can love persist such distance obscene-
Or shall life proceed in monotone?

We each still crave love’s caress,
That maps our torrid union’s history.
But time has dulled erotic progress;
Complacency, robs passions mystery.
