Above love – Michael Harris

He said he thought
I was above all that
sex and love
and relationship stuff,
the messy business
of life.

I know he meant it
in a generous way,
that he saw me
as a spiritual being
on a higher plane,
but his words

cut to the quick
and exposed
the distance I’d placed
between myself
and the cut thrust
heartache.
