2021-01-24, chasm


seeing you made me feel better
— it’s that simple
and unexplainable

seeing you made me feel love
— wasn’t illusion
or foreign language

touching you made me feel
— i’d been embraced and warmed
by the rings of saturn

touching you made me feel
— touch wasn’t a sin
or something to run from

all these words attempt to reveal
— an ancient truth
that present day complicates

i felt like sand
— you felt like ocean
and god flickered briefly in your eyes

it was hard to let go
— the understatement of the
century

i learned i’m not so special
— that this life and her grief
is never ending

and i thank you for that
— lesson
because it showed me
how to love better

without expectation
— without promise
and without reciprocation

thank you for holding my ideals
— next to my mirrored image
to prove the work was mine alone

i miss your voice
— your face
so much

and even now
— it fails to make logical sense

but i’ve learned to roll
— with what i feel
and trust the love i had
for you then has only grown
into the love i have for you now
