    1.

    they mouthed the words
    'i love you'
    exchanging 'knowing'
    looks
    with hooded eyes
    which translates
    'meet you later'

    when unknowing
    smiles keep their
    heads turned
    the 'other way'

    2.

    quietly
    they gather wrinkled
    belongings
    and
    satisfied longings
    checking
    for
    stains
    & other
    tale tell
    traces
    of secret
    liquid~filled
    embraces

    3.

    quietly
    seated
    expectant
    alone
    dangling
    between
    clock
    and
    phone

    they speak
    in lovers'
    morse
    code
    for time
    and place
    2 cum again~
    explode

    4.

    2 share
    1 dream

    2 love outloud
    2 laugh open mouth
    2 honest talk
    2 gether walk
    2 souls set free

    2 never again
    be
    "quietly"

    Counting numbers
    Measuring time
    With the smooth side
    Of lips
    And "quietly"
    They kiss
    Loud love
    Like this

    Thank you for helping me to understand
    That in this world
    All we really have to do
    Is count to 4
    And love somebody
