Never With No Words


I saw you from afar

Watched you for days

Not a stalker because

I was in the class after yours

You would leave

Pull a baseball cap over

your short curly dark hair

Everything about you made me tingle

Except that you were in a class for theologians

Would be priests

I was stupidly young

or young stupidly

I asked you for coffee

You accepted

You were my first French kiss

You also were the first to rub your sex

Covered over mine when I didn’t know

So many sensations, I was enamored

I thought, dreamed, of so many forevers

You disappeared into never with no words

Leaving me forever, unsure.
