when you love another


when you touch another

will it be with the same longing that you had 

for me 

will you crave to feel her lips against yours

like you did 


will it feel the same when she 

runs her fingers through your hair 

will it feel the same when you touch 

her skin 

when she looks at you 

will it make your heart 


a little 


the way i did 

will my name accidentally slip from your tongue 

will you think of my fingertips running down your back 


will you be able to sleep

or will your thoughts of me 

consume you 

while you lie awake 

next to her 


maybe you will not care for 

thoughts of me

when you have

her touch 

 will you push them aside 

will it just be heat fuelled by 

bitter liquor and need 

because after all 

it is just sex

is it not?
