let's fall in love pt.2

under a dark wind, a brighter moon than anything
hides undercover your hand over mine.

you led me through bramble and hill
into a field, the distant shape of a regal tree past the crest of your shoulder
white light cloaked in clouds, trod in
grass and straw, hay of the field underfoot
dew and dirt between my toes.
the chill of night swept sway in our bodies
and i shivered
if you asked me then to define rapture
overcast over empty acres would have been the answer

no room to fall
except everywhere and
no time to lose but in present company
a pulse caught in my chest, yes, right then
and there, when i saw you turn and look at me

felt like

we trust in land and air to guide us
come rushing midnight cold to shelter us
under that wind, a brighter moon than anything
hides undercover your hand over mine.
