Funny how

Wanting to love

And wanting love

I’m standing here

Kicking the grass

I’d rather

if you’d move a little closer

‘cos I just can’t seem to

Bridge this one foot or so between us

Stretching like eternity

I’m considering tripping

, falling over,

Spreading your arms wide open you say animatedly,

“It was this big”

I’m thinking of running into that space you’ve created

Right there, where your heart is,

Holding you for a second

Just to see if, all this, wanting love and wanting to love


Is real


Should I?
