for the time being

The tip of your finger, your

tongue, your eyelash

outlines my silhouette in semi-permanent

stain.

I knew from the first touch you were, we were

only temporary.

Only. Not wholly.

For the time being.

But your mouth imprints my own

and for something half-hearted

and incomplete,

you’ve made a home out of me.
