you create a stillness in me

struckdumb
closedmouth
wide eyes

folded hands inside your grace
I twirl with the smallest circle
forgetting who I am
when I'm not with you

hoisted into the palm of your hand
my heart lies quiet-

be careful when you close your fingers

even stillborn hearts can feel the crush.

in the dark, reaching for you...whoever you are
