The Locks and My Forever

with water it follows
tame until its kiss
with the wind
lashing over my face
blinded by streaks
of black and gray

i await your hands
to smooth it back
over my nape to
the arch of my spine
so far i've resisted
to clear some space
for my face
but come summer
it is a different story
