you remember your unfreedom from my body

You held me and you remembered
the other woman
on the other side of the city
on another app in your phone
you couldn’t help but meet

You held me and you remembered
the feeling you call raw
because wearing a condom
is against your will
and you are free

You touched me and you remembered
the last woman who loved you
who made you weep tears
on my bed, into my life
where all seems permitted

You touched me and you remembered
you simply had to love
you could not leave
you had to have me
If there’s nothing wrong with you
no other reason had to be

You met me and you remembered
your mother was at home alone
she needed looking after
she was maybe ok
with you spending the night

You met me and you remembered
that lover who made promises
unfulfilled, empty
you felt incomplete
you knew nobody else
who could make you feel

You held me
and you remembered
Your unfreedom
from my body
