in bed, in the dark

Posted to Poetry

you felt for
my hand in the dark
and upon its finding
you wrapped it in yours
the sort of gesture
that usually gives reasurance
but instead
you took it from me
and the fact the my hand
was indeed there

this discovery was followed
with your other hand's
traveling over my shoulder
up my neck to my chin
wher you stroked my jaw
and whispered
your relief to me
