yours
is the poetry i reach for
in times of uncertainty

the verses are
reminders of how close
and how far we can be
all at once

at how much i can miss
and how much can be exchanged

in words which tell everything
while also lingering
behind veils

there is truth there
some kind of truth
i am trying
to excavate
for myself

from the depths
of my own heart
shrouded for so long
beneath so many layers
of denial and quiet

and,
yes,
the fear
that perhaps
there is only
dust there
behind my veils.

so i am drawn
to the thick
reality of your
words, coaxed
from a life lived
daring at the seams
bursting

yours
is the poetry
i reach for
when seeking
a transfusion
