Gun Shy

And he said …

I’d be lying if I said

I didn’t find it cozy

In your inbox,

Knowing all the love

You have to give.

And she said …

I’m looking for

Someone to love

Me wholly,

Unabashedly,

Completely

Without fear.

And he said …

That’s the only way

To love a Goddess

Baby.

It’s the only way

To call your lover

Dear.

And she said …

I want someone

To love with

No reservations,

Deliberately,

Consistent gusto

Through the years.

And they said …

It seems the music’s

Getting stronger

Let’s dance along

A little longer

Over gun shy

Past our tears.
