It is not your absence,

the main source of pain,

it is not the distance,

that causes despair,

it is not time and choices

that cause disappointment,

but the certainty ,the fact,

you never got to enjoy my body,

the pleasures it could give you,

the shudders that lead inevitably

to climax and oblivion.

For, what is pleasure,

but an exhausted body

and a mind rejoicing

in the joy received and given?

I could not pay you my last homage

and this is the hidden thorn

In the red rose of my passion.

Oh wow, I love this last metaphorical couplet! Fantastic!
And these lines - "What is pleasure but an exhausted body and a mind rejoicing" - that's an incredible summary of the sexual experience. Taken out of context, it's actually vague and potentially applicable to a number of things....a broad literary brush.

This is a piece that despairs missed opportunity and amplifies the significance of physical touch. Moments make memories. Intense moments make for intense memories. There's an emptiness when all we have is our imagination to take the place of a palpable experience.
