The Lesbian Chronicles 40: Missing U

Missing U

I miss the u that was part of us.

I miss saying " I have to ask my girlfriend"

before committing to any invitations.

I miss late night after date night kisses.

I miss calling you from the train

telling you I'm coming home

at ten and not at nine.

I miss your dusky voice telling me you love me

over and over again.

I miss your raucous laugh that annoyed movie patrons

and opera goers and baseball fans

but gave me the courage to live life loud.

I miss your cat that slept on my side of our bed.

I miss licking the juice from the plum

that stayed on your fingers after a late night snack.

I miss your hand laying so gently on the small of my back.

I miss the u that was part of us.
