companionship

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
