cross-legged boundary between them

down turned eyes poured her heart

marking off her numbered list

mistakes tracked in her head

she needed no piece of paper

every misgiving remembered


her voice vibrated like when fear grips

he feel silent

listening with quiet heart

stark stillness in her closing line

she shifted her weight

laying now next to his feet

darkness rose behind closed eyes

he reached for her

taking her hand

knowing all her truths

he loved her more
