We Talked For Ages

We talked for ages,
I fondled your mind 
'til thoughts became firm.

That night,
I unzipped all your secrets.
The ones you show to no one.

I penetrated
your emotional virginity.
You bled a little,
I held your hand.

I was trying hard 
not to fall in love.
You had told me
you were not ready
to fall in love-again-so-soon.

I discovered a thousand
strung around
your body and your mind.

It was inevitable 
I would fall,
into that well of love.

I hit the bottom.
Found no water there
to soften the blow.
When your eyes
Told me 

Poem (1985) and music by Trev Teasdel
