Hold (for Jayna)

Out of the woods
We told each other
We’d tangle our story
And weave these swollen
Vessels and tresses
Into the folds of our love
And the blood of my
Mood pulses through
Your drowning days
Entwined as lovers
First out of the water
Entranced by the cold
Fire we created
Our child grown
Years between those
Promises still kept
And here we stand
At the face of the forest
Still holding your hand
Daring each other
To let go
