With eyes lit up and on alert
the night was awash in a storm
I needed to stand by her.
Circles touch and play
with her half busy look,
just as the seasons are about to change
the girl suspends her love for now.
The flood rush can wait for now
from yesterday until tomorrow turns
we swore we’d never leave.
Tonight we’ll play and pretend
we’re letting the sky and leaves settle
down on broken knees to palms
we take handfuls of each other
and smother that scent on open palms.
This, the heavy night we lay under
waiting on the outside temperatures
to settle and calm down.
From nowhere the question was begged,
she stood there hiding her secret,
stunned with her time away
hands reach and touch the spot
eyes are buried inside each other
we look and stare as if
this will be our forever season
here at last.
