Fences

entry picture

Gently you trace the tear
down my cheek
my pain mirrored
in the confusion in your eyes
not understanding what you’ve done
again
still
but wanting to

Words like barriers between us
we take turns offering apologies
reassurances
arms pulling each other close
losing myself
in your warm hard body against mine
as we both try to deny
the fences between us

Another good one, Lisa. Your comments on mine are appreciated, but I'm not commenting just cos you have. I particularly like the way the language and structure forces the pace to slow as each stanza ends emphasising the awkwardness between the two people.
