In My Way

I am
the one
who deserves
my best

I am the
protagonist

the
internal
marriage,
the
expectant
parents

I am
the love
that shaketh.

And far and away
you still climb rocks,
you still wear sweaters,
I still turn to watch you

and I still get lost.

I am so convinced

that I am the mirror
for your breath

the sea to your salt

the soap
for your bath

I keep waiting for
one sign of life

words
from your mouth

a vibration

a heat I am rid of
only in name

I may see it differently now
but I feel it the same;

and that’s
the thing–

I feel we are constantly

standing

in my

way
