Let’s be alone together.
Lay your head in my lap
In your mind I find shelter.
You’re smarter than I
_____so forgive me when I grow shy,
_____afraid to share my point of view
Like my ideas are invalid
Or my opinions untrue.
I open a book with you in the room.
A few moments pass until
The silent air is filled with vibrations
_____of your anxious depths
_____in the form of rhythmic finger taps.
Your eyes — black holes,
_____vacuums into the ages of your
_____dark tempered soul.
The spark of a bowl clouds the space
_____and my judgement.
It rolls as I pass it to my left.
You reach out, the hair of your brawned chest peaks out.
Your thumb brushes mine
_____and I love it.
