Between us - a poem.

My fingers trace a line between the sea and sky,
Smearing the water vapour, letting the light in again
Cold glass against warm skin, tired eyes looking for a glint,
Of silver, of a brighter grey within the silence that fills the car,

Words have fallen into the confined space between my heart and my head
And there they wait, weighted with fears that will fade 
Like shadows in the sun, when you finally smile -
When you finally smile and I see the sun setting over the sea,

Turning the fading words, rose and golden, into a promise
That will lead to a lifetime of sunsets, of tides
Of words whispered in cars, in beds and in your arms
My fingers trace the line between you and me.
