    Even though,
    she could see "for the meantime"
    lurking in his eyes
    And her heart recognized
    his words, "I love you"
    as a lie

    She
    swallowed them
    like candy coated truth

    Because...

    It
    meant
    more to her to have
    anybody's body by her's
    than to be without
    somebody

    His
    'goodbye'
    was unspoken, but
    written
    all-over-her-body

    He had cum and gone

    And...
    once again
    Somebody, had her body
    And she had
    nobody

    ...but her own

    nicely scripted treasure of LIFE moments...when "I need this" means more than the moment it's written on.

    THANKS for sharing.

    Cocoa - This was well crafted and poignantly reaches deep inside. It takes a poet to do that. Very nice work. Namyh

    Hi TotalView and Harry, Time has done absolutely nothing to change that I'm still one who comes late to respond to comments. My sincere apologies. I appreciate both of you reading and responding!
