I wonder

what the reverse of a wince is
because I feel it in that twitch of a smile
within your warmest cringe

& what the sound of a heart mending is
because I hear it in my name
murmured in your fondest breath

& how comfort is born
when our arms interlock
and you pretend not to notice

& how to capture in a snapshot
these eyes brimming
with my dearest affection

& how I can manage
to contain so much care
in so small a space
