VALENTINE--WITHOUT YOU 2/19/2022


(Valentine--without you...)

breathing and staring into you

my own breath quickens

your breathing becoming my own

my legs lost

tangled indistinguishable from yours

til the two of us

beat as four butterfly wings

beating in unison

in you finding the things

I've always wished for

and the things I could never have been

without you
