in the absence of you (men are crude)

in the absence of you (men are crude)

men are crude

prone as we are to objectifying anything
even the things we genuinely love & admire

prone as we are to being violent & callous
especially toward the meek & vulnerable

i as one of them
i as a becoming man
often find the mirror
a mural of disappointment

while i cannot deny
i ache for your smell
the touch of only your skin
what others would call base longing

i will not deny
i am a lonely man
desirous of you & no one else
hoping that somehow this can matter

above everything else
this is eternal & true

in the absence of you
there is nothing more precious
than the presence of you


there is much to talk about
