Instructions

by Donna Gagnon

kiss
touch
embrace
caress skin
hold me tighter now
we've been apart for way too long

fly
soar
gamble
leave today
don't prevaricate
fear not this adventure of love

scream
scratch
exit
forgive me
with grace if you can
fault lies with both of us, not one

 

tick
tock
quiver
watch and wait
but don't forget, now
time's a dangerous thing to waste

feel
write
edit
choose strong words
that touch deep inside
changing how we think and react

dance
smile
touch sky
now and then
blue heaven and light
make everything seem easier
