Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem for her book Martha.  Cheers!

Our tenderness.
Your gentleness.
We lay together.
It has been so long.
So long that I have felt a touch.
So long that my spirit has soured.
So long that I hear a sigh and a groan.
It is love.
But my heart breaks.
It has been too long.
Too long silent.
Too long alone.
With humility and love.
My heart breaks.
Your sighs and gentle touch heals it.
Once again I am whole.
I love you.  You love me.
It is right.
