I had an amazing group of die hard friends that got me through some very hard times growing up. A lot of us had problems, and felt we were alone so our bonds were extra strong and fierce. Sadly as some moved away and a few died, we were scattered in all directions. Recently, one of those friends found me, and soon sweet memories of then began to get stronger. This poem, is a way to remember that amazing time, and pay tribute to someone that once gave me hope at a time when I needed it most

All That We Are

© Raquel Mckissock

Watching him as he sleeps
Almost irresistible urges hit me,
The urge to touch him
To caress his face
To lean down and kiss
His slightly parted lips;

Where had all my strength gone?
All the wants that I had tried
So hard to hide?
I move toward him
And kneel down,
He feels me there;

He pulls me to him
As his lips find mine
And I am helpless
Unable to even resist
And I know I don't want to;

I give myself over
our bodies entwine,
Time stands still
And two lovers
Share all that we are.
