The Talk

we need to talk
now is the time
when I tell you how unhappy I am
I think you already know
I think you are too

is it that we need more time apart
you in your world
me conquering mine
or maybe we need more time together

maybe we just need to be alone
drink a bottle of wine
have some great sex
hold each other throughout the night
sleep late in the morning
whisper “I love you” with last night’s left over breath

or maybe we just need to be apart
you in your world
me conquering mine
