Gone Too Long

He's been gone a long time now. 8 years since he left this world. Sure, since then there have been others. I've even bound myself to one-permanently. It's not the same. I haven't been touched the same since. He told me, "don't settle". I didn't listen. Now I crave physical contact constantly. I didn't listen and now I havent been touched. He told me he felt sorry for the poor bastard that got me next. I didn't understand then, but I do now. It's because he spoiled me, ruined me so early. So much time has passed, I've moved on- almost, but I still long for his touch, pray for a meeting in a dream. All while I sleep next to the one who won't touch me.

Now and then, after a couple glasses of wine I miss my old friend. I also miss not needing affection because there was plenty.
