For That Second

For that second you loved me,
that second of hope,
for that moment of light
when I was not alone,
for that touch of forever
washed away by this pain,
for that second you loved me…

…I’d do anything.

Inspired tonight by a piece of music that made me reminisce….

‘For That Second’ by Rob Scallon

Playing

She hums,
            resonating,
            still vibrating,
though it can’t be heard now,
not by us,
but it was there,
alive,
just a short while ago
when sound was tangible,
when fingers
            danced upon her neck –
            pressure
            release
            pressure
            release
            and held
by the stroke of the hand.
Quietly she sits now,
waiting for more,
            patient,
            obedient,
whispering my name;
and soon enough
I shall let her sing,
give voice to her desire
and let her be
what she was meant to be.
