I Once Knew You
I once with my lips and tongue could cover ever region of your body
in less than half a day, on a sunny afternoon,
wanting to go back and retrace my steps
for the rest of the evening.
I once knew when you walked in the room, the silk fabric
would tease your lips as you smiled in my eyes.
I once could be reminded when the phone rang,
your sweet gasp on the other side,
would tell how much you missed me,
until of course you no longer needed that.
