We can
draw lines and give them names
like elements
as they are discovered

Or etch into our skins
this soloecal desire
until it is impossible to tell
where words stop
and life begins.

I would

Find a common rhythm that includes
you in my arms, my hands
and lungs and thoughts
tracing the outline of you
entangled with me
colliding like two lost particles
locked in a shared gravity
drifting through the vacuum
of space.

  I could.

Exhale, and
remember
sentence structure.
Pure, unedited.

If by ~nawkaman is masterfully written, pausing at pivotal moments to wind down to the poet becoming aware of himself. ( Featured by Nichrysalis )

The first stanza is magnificent. The rest is quality, and does not suffer for its authenticity, quite the opposite.

Thank you for the :+fav: and even more for the comment. I often find my inability to effectively edit my own poetry to be a shortcoming. Here, however, this particular thought does not want or need to be painstakingly crafted.
