Feeling a Bit Rusty After a Week-long Migraine

YOU AND I

What word we can agree on?
We’ve left like behind—
It’s too thin to hold us.
Love has the strength,
But feels dangerous.
It asks too much too soon,
Promising to last.
Maybe we don’t need
A new word, just you and I,
As we. As us.
Can we agree on that?
