Love Story 

by Barbara Boughton

You were there 
All along 
I didnít know 
I stumbled against you 
You caught me.

You slept soundly 
The sheets coiled around you 
I turned away 
And thought of these last months 
When we circled each other 
Like children, spoiling for a fight. 
We pulled apart like a stretched rubber band 
And wondered why it didnít break 
But bounced back.

We struggle to talk 
And share our secrets 
We hold them safe 
From the world outside

Making our way together 
We trip and roll 
Up a hill and down another 
Intertwined like a childís braid.

Iím out of breath, you say 
Lean against me, I say.
