(painting: Sweet-Slumber, 20x24 inches, by Joseph Lorusso)
Precariously poised on the precipice
of expectation that something spectacular
would satisfy that urgency between us...
Was I the dreamer? Were you the schemer?
Fingers nervously await the burgeoned temptation
to touch you, to stroke your desirous root,
to feel your anticipation and appreciation,
to strum that rhapsody of love as I remain mute.
