The Journey Love Took

image borrowed from bing

the journey love took

Nothing says love louder than
letting your lover warm
cold winter feet
against your body
as you try drifting
off to sleep

The same feet you dulled
your fingers on earlier
working kinks out
the sole of a hard day

Or bringing those same hands
to your face, as you lay,
wincing, so you can once more
catch the scent
of the journey love took,
to come, to this place.
