About we lie and laugh and laze
In these hot and hazy lust-filled days.
Counting clouds and admiring with kisses,
We soar to a time back where nobody missed us
To relive and rehearse the love scenes we’re writing:
A world built for two, one with no cause for hiding.
Facing each other, you reach for my hand,
Calling me by pet names only you understand.
And in that moment, a bond’s made and sealed,
An eternal promise good as long as we feel
The quivering and quaking which animates our “Now.”
Surely as sacred as a vocalized vow?
