Like, a poem

Like

We were very much in like
with each other and maybe
that is enough. We could
have settled, I think.

That time has passed and now
friends means only friends,
while I go seeking the sort
of love that knots

me up, makes me sick,
demands more than I have.
If only I could once more
fall in like.

pretty much of a throwaway --- don't expect it to show up in a book or anything (unless it's a posthumous anthology!)
