"i just don't want to be a fool... no i don't want to be a fool, never, never again..."*

i learned this week
that either i am a fool
or you are a liar
and since i take people
and what they say at face value
that makes me a fool
for believing that
our middle of the night toe touches
and your forehead, nose, shoulder
bellybutton, thigh, leg kisses,
our laughter
our conversation
the tears that seeped from my eyes
as the tip of you
touched the depth in me
could ever
ever mean anything
to anyone
other than me.

*--the man, Luther Vandross, though I could have easily written these lyrics myself.
