Dining Room

We stood together in the dark
pressed against each other
alone in the house
so I don't recall why that room
why standing
I remember at least the
shadow of intensity
the breathlessness of that moment
both of us fully grown
hearts beating in our throats
low voices
wanting so much
unable to imagine a way forward
together or apart
in the end we found neither
only a wide expanse of pain
