A Poem by Thaddius

You're soft of skin

hard of disposition

I realize you could be my wife

as you're sipping coffee and I joke

about how I used to jitter.

I knit your little truths into the

turtleneck you're wearing,

the chain that blocks me from your thoughts,

the ideas I twist and start to choke you with.

Each common thread, I know you less, and

the more I think I show to you

the less of me you see.

 You're wearing all your clothes

I hand over my robe,

meet your shudder with

the softest of all gazes that

a guy can give

I love this. You really captured the feelings of struggling to get close to someone; but I love how it's so uniquely done. Great job.
