solitude for two

a poem because i hate being closeted and i miss my girlfriend.
what i want
is to kiss her eyelids in peace
and to hold her hand
without the neighbour's gaze.
i want to lay next to her
without their murmurs infesting our bed
without their scrutiny searing the sheets.
i want somewhere safe, i want somewhere warm,
i want her arms around me
without having value ascribed to our touch
without labels clinging to our collars.
when she's near me it seems possible,
a place we won't be judged
but for now she'll take her arm off my shoulders
and i'll hesitate to hold her hand,
and we will love in this halfway state
until we are alone.
