You didn’t mean it, reacting on intinct,
and I hadn’t thought…which makes it
no one’s fault, as usual.
Another tripping part of life which teaches,
as ever,
sometimes things are no ones fault
and yet they still manage to spoil
a simple holding hug,
I am stiff as you touch me,
I can feel myself, holding myself,
and urge myself to yield, to hug back,
instead I pull away within myself.
But it was no ones fault,
I know you didn’t mean it,
didn’t mean the few seconds of life,
which was all it was,
and the rational voice goes on,
I pull away even so.
I know you didn’t mean it,
but my body is reacting on instinct,
like yours did.
