a little hallelujah

or is she holding your hand because she wants to?

a meager sweatshirt
with hood solves nothing

in a monsoon
of sideways rain.

the trees beg
for your shelter

though you hide
under them.

a shiver prompted you
to hold her closer

to hold her hands
in yours.

but you wonder,
is she compliant

because of the cold

This kinda reminds me of that "Turtles" song..."Busstop" I think it is.
I like yours better though (nothing personal against the Turtles) as yours has an air of mystery to it. It is familiar to manhy a life experience of mine. Does she actually like me? Or is there an alterior motive? (like keeping warm or being drunk off her ass or some such...)
