Aubade #1

Aubade

Had I known about the Aubade then,

that a form could hold each morning parting

then these months

 

that have stretched

 

like a never ending bed

between our parting and the present

may have never passed.

Even as we welcome new lovers

as they lay their bodies

longways

between us

I recoil at the thought of my bare feet,

meeting the cold floor of life without you.
