i never want to feel distance from you.

Posted to Action Poetry




i never want to feel distance from you.
not even on these days where my past
creeps up behind us
and screams obscenities
in our happiness.
i want to hold you dear
and show you how you're so much more
how you've given me
hope
when there was none.
how you've made me something
when i was nothing
an empty hollow girl
and you've uncovered me
waiting
here
quiet the entire time.
i never want to feel distance from you.
i want to be next to you
held in your eager arms
knowing you're watching me breathe
seeing the moonlight reflected in my hair
and i want to take your hands
to my mouth
and kiss them in worship
showing you
it's me
and you
and only
us.
