IN THE HOLDING OF OUR HANDS

In the holding of our hands we express how deeply our lives entwine at the physical level, and more.

We express how strongly we belong with each other, you are all my world, when I hang onto you I show I hang onto everything about you, everything you say.

Above all we express the trust we have for each other, I'm not going to let you go, you won't let me go, we will carry each other linked heart and soul through all that life throws at us. In times of pain and uncertainty, and of enjoyment, I know you will grasp me for dear life, and I you.

We hold hands so tightly nothing can come between them, showing we are a strong couple that nothing can come between.

The meeting of our palms speaks anticipatingly of the meeting of the skins of our bodies in a more private setting.

Inspired by Pandora Unleashed's poem 'Hands' and its accompanying picture. (My poem came after contemplating the latter.)
