i carry you

beneath the ribbed truth

of my heart’s

once bruised skin

and find an end

in the wanderlust

of the given


yet all that i might gift

is a soft rain’s brief refrain

and parted lips

that sip the song that trips

into pools of tide

where clinging things


and i abide

in the mind

of Love’s kinder times
