I remember loving you with nuclear heat
Though we stayed cool together,
our feelings ran deep & our flesh
was contained in polished exoskeletons.
No one could touch us; many tried,
calm & knowing
to whom we belonged
Easily kept the world out of our shells.
We hardly spoke, yet it was clear
we partook of destiny – so meant to be
That the world didn’t trouble us at all.
You bought me a silver engraved heart necklace –
I still remember the weight of it around my neck
And I miss it just as I miss you.
