Together but Not

You and I
Are not so different
Eyes shaded
In the same vein

Veins percolating
With droplets
Of time passed
As water

Our lips
have kissed in
memories and torrents
of air and light

We touch
because our bodies
dissolve over again
Sloughing into space

We touch
because currents pull
matter attracts
Tides are more
than longing pools

We are both moons
And planets
in dancing orbit
and are bound

Together but not.
