Nothing above a sigh

We all have cause to give up on love now and

Then. Barren days, barren nights, intimacy on

Hold or on a low light. New dresses untouched

Spike heels in a scattered line, lingerie that

Hasn't blushed for weeks... and for the guys

Suits still in polybags, stick pins in need of a

Polish, ties with the whiff of tired spice and a

Gold watch in need of a battery. Oh, love, why

Hast thou deserted me?


With no one to love and no one to love you

There comes a deafening silence - you'll know

It when you hear it - it's the way the world felt

Before light, the way Adam felt before Eve. But

As with all things in this world it will pass and

With its passing will come another kind of silence

The silence inspired by a kiss when there is no

Need for words and nothing above a sigh

Reaches the ear.
