your greatest mistake
was that you let logic and reason
prevail over madness and desire

who is he?
you thought
to have such an effect on me
and you dismissed him

science could not find you
the answers you wanted to hear
there was no test you could devise
to prove that you loved him
(or anything for that matter)

faith was something
only for lonely people
and god-botherers
you were never a believer

now he is not with you
you know for certain
that you miss his touch
and nobody else
can mould themselves
to fit the spaces he has left
hollow in your chest.
