getting by

you had
rainbows in your eyes
when you first saw me

thrilled with
the unusual that i was

wondering about the future

now there's no talk
between us
about the next day

much less next year

as we worry what
we've shown

to our outside worlds

i still love
every nail in your hand
even when
you hold me back

i still marvel
at the colour of your eyes
even when
they flash at me

i still want
your voice in my ear
even when
it's veiled in confusion

we'll get by
even if we can't
get over ourselves
...two hearts
holding true

me and you
