A love poem

fumble with me

through this lifetime

and if we happen to get a next

fumble with me again

there's only so many times

my breath can synch with yours

until I believe we are breathing

to sustain each other

there's only so many times

my eyes can comfortably meet yours

before I say

this must be forever

or at least for a while

this unbalanced, uncoordinated dance

we do

that's actually something exquisite

the most beautiful thing i've ever


that's what i am

what you are

what anyone wants

to be seen
