Closed Mouth Don’t Get Fed

I held his hand in the dark like he asked me to

Waiting, my heart fragments sticky on the bottom of his shoes

Waiting

For the vise to loosen so I could melt into him, for the hot energy of my hands to speak for me, for his truth

My loving stranger

It’s important that he thought he loved me.
