Love is always our alibi, for all the things we do, fail and hope to do. Waiting seems the biggest price to pay for love.
Listening for familiar footfalls,
of keys jangling
then a whimper greeting
the clatter of laughter
Clock ticks, air hums.
like a brand new shoe
poised in humidity.
The hour now long past
Waiting and worry : My currency of love
Inspired by the movie The Water Diviner and song “Love Was my Alibi” by Kris Fogelmark.
