Being still with you

Tonight, I don’t want to speak with you

I want to sit in silence next to you

and be still with you.

I don’t want to look at you, wrap my body

around you or even laugh with you.

I want to feel the silence envelop us

over, around and across.

A figure eight like an Arabian dance

reminding that we are one

in ourselves and together.

I want to sit next to you

in the weight of this stillness.

I don’t want to think of you, desire you or be inside you.

Let your hands do what they want to

Let them find the touch of my knees

and the movement in my breath.

And know that when your hands glide across my leg

and when your arms hold me,

you hold all the imperfections of my body.

And I will sit here

Enjoying the jingles of this silent dance

Here in this moment with you

And when you are not here,

Know that I will think of you and desire you and love you

as you are here now in stillness with me,

doing nothing else

than loving this and loving us
