Rash's Poetry House

Pretend Once More

I feel I will never again know
what it is like to have the security 
of you beside me when I wake.

In middle night I may never again feel you pull me tight against you your hand 
caress my breast
cup it and hold it secure
as you fall into deeper sleep.

I am afraid you will no more kiss me awake in gray pre-dawn
my body waking to you
before I do
heat rising
as I anticipate your touch
moisture trying to cool
what only you can quench.

Hold me one more time 
at least pretend
you really care.
