The Half Of It

To tell you that
I remember the first illicit night
We agreed about our
Incompatibility
While falling indelibly
In love,
Undeciding
Who would be first
To give in

To tell you that
I remember how
No breath to be afraid
You won me over and over
That night I slept beside
You on our slender bed
My body older
Yours younger still

To tell you that
I remember how
You teasing me,
On the scarcity of my
Inscribed kiss
So I kissed your body
From head to navel to foot
And back again

To tell you that
I remember you went on
Leaving me falling
Too far to hold your hand
As was my utterance
In muted tones to tell you
The half of it.
