August


Written on this day many moons ago …

Tomorrow begins August.

One more month before
its through.
One more month
of seeing you,
our time in measured doses
till it’s done.

Which of us will act?
We search each other’s souls
with just a glance,
too scared to take a chance,
committed to
reaction.
Our noses pressed against
the hourglass,
we watch as
each day passes,
one by one,
until it’s done.

Here is my heart:
Let’s run barefoot
through our time together
while it’s here.

(there’ll be time enough
for tears)
