In It Together

We grasp at the ladder

fingers slippery from past mistakes.


Hearts pounding in unison

the darkness claws at our heels

as our mouths open

in silent screams.


Suspended by invisible lines,

hair dangling in thick air,

movements too slow,

time too lost to breath.


If only mistakes could be wiped,

words left unspoken,

actions unwound.


We are met in matrimony

as our eyes meet.


Our hands are raised,

our palms kiss,

and then we let go.


The darkness is cold as we plunge

but our bodies are colder,

locked in a frozen embrace.
