black & white

 

 

this is intimacy beyond intimacy   

another realm   beyond touch   though

 

touch would be nice   in the karma

to come    when we are nineteen again   

 

at our peak   in our prime   primed   

too young and stupid to even know

 

how brilliant we are   even in the moment   

we will take for granted our give and take

 

like a cigarette smoked without thought   

or a love that will haunt forever   

 

you don't even know what you've done

with this gift of black & white

Beautiful. I like the dichotomies of black/white, young/stupid, and intimacy/not intimacy. However, I feel like I've read this before. Did you happen to repost it after some tweaking?
