To Deliquesce

We were so very right from opposing views,
and our spines were steel
supports for cantilevered lips
projecting righteous hurt,
and as words settled into silence,
anger cooled as
a blanket of ice
a slippery sheet of layered invective,
woven with anger
and hemmed with shame.
In order to deliquesce,
a hand would be needed
a look given,
a sad smile offered,
a hug shared,
and all would be forgiven
then spring would evolve
fecund from the ground of our pain.
