We Built A Room

We built a room
Padded it with all the unknowns
Stuffed our fears into the corners
Painted it orange and blue.

We built a room
Using all our shared tools
You put in your iron
I laid out my quilts.

We built a room
With an open air window
Through it we watched the moon
Traded stories of waning and waxing.

We built a room
A place where touch was sacred
Where eyes were full
And where truth breathed freely.

We built a room
Dozed off to breezy rhythms
Woke to piano-rich melodies
Spent the day humming.

We built a room
You stepped out for a moment
Gave me a wink through the window
I dug my fears from beneath the floorboards
And waited for your re-entry.
