P0680. Another day


later than agreed
you arrive
apologetic that you
have not been shaved

your stubble doesn’t hurt me
my hand she caresses with love
feels so familiar
you are the one i see

leaning against the kitchen counter
you observe me
while I make coffee for you
and we chat

for the first time we are alone
and have time
to talk about ‘us’
saying what I feel for you

I squeeze
through your short hair
so softly
that gesture

you are open
to what i tell you
my soulmate
i give you my heart
