the weight of you

your arms are around me 
i am captured 
we lean over 
so you can point out 
something to me 
in the garden 
you stop us 
from toppling into 
the bags of bottles 
for the recycling bin 

it has been a while 
due to your absence 
and i actually could not remember 
what the weight of you 
felt like 

how could i misplace that electric touch 
as you move down my body 
and gaze at me 
with love lust 

and i think 
how i can function without you 
i don’t need you 
but i want you.
