Long shadows of afternoon
have fallen from the day
your eyes closed twitch slightly
delicate moving lid skin away
from these last streams of light
You shift in respiring shimmery mass
and I curl close to that warmth
proven to melt my glacial years
we flow together against encroaching
night will pass as all things must
When you open your eyes turn
with that look that undoes me
searching for something small
but locked some seamless safety
you find in mine
