A moment later you were gone,
But your touch lingered on and on,
Till memory rolled like film,
Across each sane path of thought.
I was adrift and helpless,
No bridge to help my resistance,
Alone in thought and memory,
Desire began to unfold.
I could resist you,
Said 'No I think I'm through',
I can go on without hope of you,
And start my life as a friend to you.
