Never Quiet, Never Quite by Joseph James Cawein

We were never quite
sexual beings

our bodies never quite
got the rhythm

and our eyes never quite
met like they do in the movies

I never quite
made it past your smile

and never quite
said what i thought

but we were never quite
quiet

and never anything less than
somber lonesome beautiful friends

in the never quite
romantic night

  1. it astounds me that there are fake bloggers liking this poem to advertise ‘weight loss for women’. my contempt for the internet has increased tenfold.
