Holding hands

House hunters.

Held hands.

Humble hearts.

His + hers.

Homely happiness.


His heart hastened.

Hers halted.


He held her hand,

Howling helplessly.

Heaven harboured her.


He hallowed her history.

Hearing her harrow.

Hardened his heart.

Hampering his harmony.

Haunting his hopes.

He haemorrhaged happiness.

Hating his house.

Hardly his home.


He’s hypoxic.

He huffs.

Heaving heavily.

His head.

His heart.


Holding hope.

He’s home-bound.

He hears her hush.


Her heavenly halo

Heals his hurt.


He holds her hand.
