…In Our Embrace

I don’t care what
Others think
About our relationship.

I don’t care
About the “visual,”
Or whether people
Focus on
Our differences.

I don’t care
About the risk.

To hell with
What others say.

What I can’t ignore,
What I can’t forget,
What I can’t sidestep
In my life…

Is you.

So now what?

What am I to do?

Where am I go?

How am I,

How am I supposed
To move forward,

To acknowledge,

And accept,
That it’s more
Than just a fling…

And that I’ve fallen
In love you?

Maybe I shouldn’t
Worry about
That either.

Perhaps the answers
To my questions
Will speak in
Their own way
And with their own voice.

Revealing themselves

Softly,
And quietly
And profoundly,
And perfectly,

In our touch…

In our embrace.
