Hushed

How can something I crave

Also be my deepest fear?

I’ve broken into blossom

In the midst of an infertile year.

I want to seal you away in an envelope

And mail you to a better time -

For I have all these thoughts

I’m not sure I can climb.

You were impossibly loud

When all else fell still.

I want you once more -

One cheap, senseless thrill.
