You Are Gone, Long Gone; And You Have Forgotten.

You are gone, long gone;
and you have forgotten.

I am alone remembering,
alone in that which was.

The night is dark and deep;
and sleep will not come.

I remember the words,
the words that are symbols.

I remember all things
that were true for us:

The arms and the lips and the body,
the outwardness, the flesh of love.

The dreams that were ours,
the dreams that are love's soul.

And the still thought comes:
One plus one is two.

But one less one
is less than nothing.

written lovely 'The arms and the lips and the body, the outwardness, the flesh of love.' and bittersweet 'But one less one is less than nothing.'
