Reading the words causes a stir in my hour
so I shrug off the indifference and move:
your heart demands a larger grace
and I am fool for trying

to pinpoint
the how
the why
the reason YOU were the one that struck me
now
here in this place of longing
making me notice the things I am missing
making me miss them all the more-

I tremble at losing you. Throw out words to deny. But I feel you slipping, spilling out
towards the air in too many directions
too many ways
away from me.

Always
in these moments
your eyes remain idle. Always
in these moments
my heart remains sore.

"These poems, they are things that I do
in the dark, reaching for you...whoever you are
and are you ready?"
