“Separation Your absence has gone through me Like thread through a needle. Everything I do is stitched with its color.” ― W.S. Merwin

a glimpse transmits thoughts
— at speeds once considered impossible

you knew i wanted you
— before i knew i wanted you

you also loved me
— before i considered myself lovable

you couldn’t know
— that hours would become years

or that my eyes would dilate
— at the incomparable potency of you

thought
when my energy attracts intimate love again, i hope to recognize it for what it is, instead of fighting it in fear of all the other things i’ve experienced it to be.
