Calm (6:00 PM)

It intrigues me how in this world filled

with chaos and christs nothing

can soothe me like you.

No massage or therapy can calm me

like the affliction of your touch.

Your smile and kiss is

all I need to pull me from

my cloud of questions, lost keys

and too many teeth gnashing

and demanding at once.

You ground me in a place where

others’ lives don’t rely on my

punctuality or presence.

When the violence of society is over

I retreat to you,

Where questions can go unanswered

and yours is all I need to be.
