A future without the other

I wanted it differently and so did you as far as I know.
Though I’m helpless against your anger, hell no I will
allow you drown me in your self-righteous black sea.
Of all unskilled male lovers in the world you must be
the greatest of them all – and it is a truly sad thing to
see the one you loved vanishing like a ship in the fog
as you see me and I you in the now gone lost sailing
away in thickening mists; A future without the other.

Poem inspired by John Lee Hocker “The waterfront”
(and the foggy November outside my window)
