Absence of Affection

Unpromised affection
Physical touch apart
From bedtime or goodbye
Yearning for hands to slide
Around me while doing
An ordinary chore
Transforming the mundane
Loveliness now defined
A breathless connection
Keeping us together
In rooms or miles away
Memory lending peace
To the dreams unfulfilled
Merely In the giving
Of an unexpected
Thoughtful caress by you
Unmanaged and unplanned
Desire, passion, need
Compelling your gesture
In this moment doing dishes
