The Bitter Gift of Friendship

you wanted half of me
the half I never offered,
the gift I wanted

another opens,
anothers fingers untie
your lacy wrappings,

while my present is
the bitter gift of friendship
in your Christmas kiss.

Oh, John, I love this. I'm not even sure why, but I love the brevity and the wealth of meaning in a few words.
