The Slack In Us
I thought I’d drowned you out,
that persistent beating in my chest.
it’d be a tug at the strings
caught carelessly on your
but you couldn’t notice,
they were so long,
tangled in tiny pearls that
swung helplessly between us.
the landscape danced and
stretched before me
so I ran until my lungs gave out,
so you wouldn’t turn around,
bow your head in curiosity or
see me grabbing at the slack in us.
limbs windmilling, catching distances
I tore up the pavement trying to
catch up to the look in your eyes.
