I thank the darkness
for what if has taught me

lying here
bathed in the last of night
thinking of
our supposed deep connection
become totally, blessedly,
purely biological
stripped of each and every
psychological need or obstruction
romantic pretension

impossible not at such a moment
to appreciate, nay, even love
darkness

for it is to
your realm, your bosom
that we (separate, together)
must forever return.
