open door

who might arrive
if i leave my door open
to the circus
and the sky

who might step inside
to share the day
the night
their inner tide

fluxing with mine
like surrendered seas
at the moons mercy

where might we go
this stranger and i
trusting the songs
our bodies want to sing

as we empty our minds
into currents unknown
why not just be kind
why not just be kind

while we gaze at each others toes
and pretend not to hear
the quiver in our voices
the tracing of our tears

as earth holds us close
tenderly entwined
and i breathe in your fear
as you breathe out mine

fingers tremble
undoing our skin
diving in
