tighter, Still!


train tracks churning, splintering trust

within attraction’s spark of impassioned friction


hoarse lungs, grinded-raw against unspoken hurt

rusted hope, poisoning from deep within


raw emotions, framing quivering eyes

difference\'s belated deliverance of aching pulse,


brave eyelashes blink furiously

refusing to drip tears of submissive fears

stubbornness as fierce resonation  

refocused eyes glistening in determination 


refuting their relationship’s untameable tracks

is surrendered to a Titanic destiny

life’s oars gripped tighter to defy jostling seas

this, a wild ride upon love’s seats


surviving by investing, and


each other, ever tighter
