the space between us

I feel tired
And exhausted
Like I’ve run miles
But for some reason
I’m still in this spot
Standing three feet away from you

I’d like to rest
And feel warmth
Like when I was held in your arms
But for some reason
I’m still in this spot
Standing three feet away from you

I’d like to smile
And feel happy
Like moments ago before you showed up
But for some reason
I’m still in this spot
Standing three feet away from you

And as much as I’d like to
I won’t run to you
I won’t rest in your embrace
I won’t smile that way again
I am walking away
I don’t want more reasons
To fill the space between us

unpurposed

sometimes I get
anxious
frustrated
impatient

to know
my purpose
and not be
fulfilling it

to be
the answer
and not be
asked

to be
the solution
and not be
given the chance

to be
the one
and not be
counted

it just makes me
doubt myself
maybe I’m not
any of those things
at all

wake for me

I climbed late into bed
softly so I wouldn’t wake you
and felt your warmth trapped in the covers

I rested my head on your chest
softly so I wouldn’t wake you
and felt it rise and fall in deep slumber

I tangled my legs between yours
softly so I wouldn’t wake you
but enough to know I claim you

I trailed my fingertips up and down your skin
softly so I wouldn’t wake you
but I looked up to see if I stirred you

I placed kisses trailing a path to your lips
softly so I wouldn’t wake you
but hard enough to make you

kisses at dawn

image

this is the earliest

I’ve woken all summer

the a/c blasts into my bedroom

goosebumps on my bare legs

as I drop my warm bed covers

the blinds sway in rhythm

the sun pierces through them

dancing in ribbons of gold

into my darkened room

painting the wall in a soft glow

and as I cross the room

golden rays land

on my morning skin

like warm kisses

you’d give

rainy day

sometimes I think

I have magical powers

like when it rains

when I think it ought to

or when you appear

when I think about you

Collision

there’s a moment

so brief in time

that no one noticed it

no one but us

as we crossed paths

our eyes met

and bang

our souls

collided

intertwined

connected

and tangled

into a mess

so far that

pulling apart

only brings us

closer to the heart

slow dance

she knew she’d lose her balance

even before she’d started to dance

but she placed her hand in his

his other pressed the small of her back

and he led her to the dance floor

then into his arms

she was so close

she could smell his cologne

feel the warmth through his clothes

see his neck and his cheek

and the corner of his lips

her heartbeat quickened

even though it was a slow song

he pressed her hand underneath his jacket

pulled her closer

and all of her felt his heartbeat
