The First 10 Minutes

What just happened?
I arrive outside

To see you smile.

You stop

And plant a kiss upon my lips.

My pulse skips a beat.

You continue working the yard as

I walk inside to work on school.

You arrive inside

To see me smile.

You stop

And snap and growl.

My pulse stops, then races.

Your words bring tears to my eyes.

You step aside and move past

Seemingly unfazed.

We’ve arrived together

To a painful silence.

We stop

And sit side by side.

My pulse flutters from

My wounded heart.

Do we move on?

What happened in that

Short space of time?

Matters not.

Let’s stop.


Rewind back

To the first 10 minutes.
