held her self still.

And I

recalling her face yet

that with my mouth

I forced the enquiry,

and argued the pressing

to her lips

Like those wants

of wishes sated

we had with marbled hurt

turned one back

against the other,

that was forever

like the past

both of us

going nowhere,

Always - so much passion and pain in a few magnificent lines. I salute your power to 'communicate'. And no title - 'Make up your own, if you have to have one,' says Tommy.
