Four messages

So after the day is done, now,
as sunset comes upon you and only
my actions remain visible, we
hack away the loneliness

and our love remains intact,
so if ever I forget, remember
you forever promised, honest,

to say what’s on your mind,
as intimacy built on questions
unanswered is mere falsehood…
so kiss me once, kiss me two,
three times, dear lover,

and speak adamantine words
to never be rescinded
and never be let go.
