the quiet before we embrace


you
wear part of your history
because it needed to breathe
needed to cry loud enough
to make the rain feel sympathy
and i
insist on holding you that much longer
when we embrace
because i need you enough
that those years and dreams
you wear with deliberate deliciousness
hopefully speak to me
and permit me to add to them
