Your nearness is loss

I am something else now

I am a father I am a husband

The sight of you is loss

The air around your body warmed by skin

Knowing I am outside the circle of young women is loss

The air around you breathes, it shares your life

The night river which you think is other flows for you

You are a force as elemental as the binding powers
