A little longer

They lay there

Full of Grace

Listening to each other’s rugged heartbeats

Lips on lips

Broken promises

He says

“We will stay here just a little longer”

So they lay there

Watching as the cosmos collapse like

Samson’s pillars

Just a little longer

Just enough to knot the frayed nerves of their ruined forearms end to end

Enough to count the strands of golden hair

To bless each cut

and forgive each sin

Seal Father time in a Pauper’s tomb

Enough time to blink and miss it

To first explain their depth of loneliness

And then their depth of love

Enunciating each syllable

Free of tangled tongues

“Please don’t go,

Just lie here a little longer. “
