When The Feeling Dies


And this is the way you make love to me

The feeling of ecstasy

And this is the way of your breath

Inhale exhale inhale exhale

To feel the warm air

And to become one with our heartbeats yours and mine

And because we know it’s not for real

It’s not for love

We still get caught in the moment

And the motion, only for a moment, made me believe

While we think the same thoughts

We breathe the same breaths

Our hearts beat together but separately

And the hot body lies softly next to mine whispering

During the long sleep as if nothing ever happened

And this where my sobs begin in my stale heart

That beats so slowly now

So slowly after dark

And this is not really love

Sex without feeling

Feeling no emotion

And this is what always happens

To my heart responding to lust

And my heart is saying goodbye

And you decide to go, say that you will leave

And you do.

I'm thinking, many people can relate to this, even if they never say it.

Thank you GT! Sometimes its hard to say what we think or do for fear of the response.
