Painless Energy

There's no one 

to spoon with, 

it's torture 


Thousands of miles away 

from friends 

and family, 

there's no one to hold 


No crutch 

of extra body warmth, 

no soft backs,

no fragranced necks


I wonder, 

if the thought of torture 

crossed their minds as they 

moved away from home 

to leave old ways behind 


In all fairness 

on my behalf, 

i Iend my body  

and my comfort



that it helps 

my friends sleep 

knowing they can 

reach out and feel my energy
