hold me close 

and tell me, that this storm

ends somewhere soon


show me, when the sun comes 

how the rainbows bend their painted curves

into a smile


hold my hand

I’ll let you hold my fears

like thawing snow

between your fingers

melt to nothing on the ground


take away

the parts of me I keep unseen

held within your palm –

the parts of me you love


when this is over

look at me – we’ll see 

a thousand routes and roads

where the lines around our eyes should be


we’ll thrive where once we slept

smile where we once wept

run free and smooth

as your fingertips

in journeys made across my cheek
