smoke rings and smiles.

Stars in the dark,
cold breathe in the air,
yours and mine.

You’re the best part of me
when we’re here.
Words between us
wait for these moments
of tenderness
when we safely share
all that’s in our heads
in our hearts
in our bones.
We are safe
with each other
side by side
with my head resting
snug in the crook of your shoulder.

The vulnerability here is fair
but will be gone
before the sun shows up again
to expose it all in our eyes
instead of letting it
just feel through this black air between us.

If only the world could see
through the dark
through the strange secrecy.
Maybe then this kind of love
could be appreciated
the very same way
we do.

Maybe they could have it too.
