In the Theatre of Our Hair


We put our heads together
(hide behind our hair)

only kisses & promises

happen in here.


We put our heads together
(disappear behind our hair)

the world reduced to a single heartbeat

only love happens here.


We put our heads together
(the world disappears)

Time seems to pass us by

...who cares?

    Jim has picked the perfect word for what I have read so far - - potent, but so very sketchily done...I am amazed to see how few words it takes to describe such powerful emotions...only love happens here! Outstanding writing. (Report) Reply

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
