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, tie 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.
