My heart hurts

strains

feeling both painfully swollen and frighteningly empty

My stomach lurches

eyes closed

fingers twined with yours

waiting

to see what “our country” has in store for us

how truly dangerous this life may become

I will stay here with you

arms, hearts, minds, and lives wound together inorexably

just you, me, and these precious babies

all we can do is wait
