Had It Happened…

Sly, but not really
the aftermath of it all.
Profits over people,
bully pulpit building walls.

Going through the motions
of what love should be.
Are we stalling demise,
breathing bodies from trees?

but the noise does insist
that we push away all
until speech does exist.

My fingers caress
every inch of your skin,
warming both of us up.

is completely endearing.
Oh, darling you must know
