it's true

faith eludes me

i believe in relationships


faith in spooks

and thunderbolt hurlers


and tomorrow

rings hollow   are constructs

but you are real


i've felt your breasts against mine

felt the heat and heart of you


there is no supposition

or doubt

or creed or text or pulpit


or judgement

only you   incarnate

I love words that make me think. This is so nice, and written so well.

I like the idea of preferring tangible instead of something intangible or abstract, like faith. Nicely done!

D G Moody
A well-constructed poem that worked for me, both in style and content. On relationship E M Forster is worth reading, putting it above any other claim.
