My Love


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,
But we, 
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.
