The Web Poetry Corner - Gary Scott Gebert - Shiver
Gary Scott Gebert
Above you with nothing to hide,
I give to you my body--
believing for just a moment,
we are one.
As I concentrate on you,
staring into those deep green eyes—
hoping we’ve suddenly committed,
dropping the wall between us.
With each tense tick of the clock,
praying somehow to break through—
allowing the inside out,
to be excepted as your equal.
Till the time of finality,
remembering the vows we uttered—
the transparent words we spoke,
_with this ring, I thee dread.
I begin to shiver.
