something to hold

because there was time to kill
somewhere in a room
with roller blinds soft enough to let in sunlight
a glow so hushed even cortisol does not speak
above a whisper all day
with a voice that folds itself
into an infinite loop and i am always listening
to the streets steeped in rain and it is your hand i reach for
on the sand and my head joins the moonlight
resting on your shoulder
wearing my sweater
over and over so it will never stop smelling like you
show them this laughter, spilt borderless
enough to break the dam
and there is enough here to drown
in your lips tonight
kiss me in every rural town
until the sunset changes its mind and it is summer forever
