what’s the rush?

i rush headlong and get all tangled up
my heart goes crashing down, I gasp for air
Stifling sobs, tears fall unbidden, hidden
I swallow them back but a few escape
Wet on lashes, hot, against my fingers
raised to quickly brush them away –  I breathe
cautiously in case breath catches midway.
I’ve turned my body away from your gaze
you continue stroking my side then back
Soothing kisses on the back of my neck
I dance to that familiar tune of old
Of back and forth, hello, goodbye my friend
My lover – mine to hold but not to keep
I dart this way and that, take me, let go.
We while away the time as though we had
Aeons and ages, all eternity.
