BECAUSE

by Nancy

She
Tells me dreams

Us
Together
I
Name them
Hopeless
Resisting
Her
All
She would give
She deserves
More
More than even dreams
May promise

I seek refuge
The ancient arguments
Convincing
Rational
Intelligent

I think
Behind the listening
She might be
Grinning

A swell of
Sympathy
The elation of
Victory
Both
Poorly veiled
Peek from her absorption
With my discourse
Each brilliant phrase
At once trivial
And tired and
Neither of us
Believes
Any of it
She hushes me
Grown impatient
With my logic
Will she grow
Impatient
My worst fear
With
Me
Then
She smiles
Can it be
She finds such pleasure
In
My face

Her fingers
Engage mine
Delight in
The game
Our hands
Play
I forget
That need to protect
Her
From them

She smooths my hair
Tames it
As she would
Conquer
The adversary
I am become
She indulges me
Our love war

My dark places
Havens of
Heartache
Despair
Transformed
The stones
Impart her message
Have courage
Beloved
Come out
I wait
For you
Only
You

I step
Over tumbled walls
Stumble
My
Infallible
Indisputable
Loving
Denials
Rubble
In my path

She
Is there
Conviction and courage
Enough for two
This dream
Hers
Mine
Us
Together

Coming true
Because

We love

And no more is needed, H
