Shiver. Too cold for comfort, even with your arms around me.
Contemplate the feeling of wholeness, warmth, consolation,
No separation from you or who you are.
Shiver. Not a time to ponder what might have been.
Consequently, I’m moved by your devotion, your intention
To bring me back to where I believed it could not go wrong.
Shiver. The one that got away, with time to play on my affections,
Blundering in, no remorse just a course set straight and true
Through my heart with no comeback, no apology.
Shiver. Relief fills my bones, my veins, my every breath
When I’m reminded of what could’ve been, the unseen dangers
Of an open road without you.
And when I’m here, in your embrace, in the closeness of your heart
I shiver with anticipation at what’s to be.
