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?
