The Nearness Of You - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

I gaze
at the molecules

as the end
of my fingertips

merge
with the molecules

at the end of yours

no longer
able to tell
us apart

each of us
gazing into

each other’s eyes
each other’s heart

touching
each
other

mol ecule by molecule.

    Reminded me of my poem...that I become you, and you become me...absorbed into each other...molecule by molecule! (Report)Reply
