The Fall


I hang
Suspended
Entangled in the
Web of your gaze

Suspended
I hang
Waiting
Mesmerised

Captured
In pools of light,
Galaxies reflected
From your eyes

Seized by light
I hang half-way
In the chasm
Between our kiss

In that moment
Between our breath
Caught in the universe
Of your gaze

I slip into
The roaring
Silence
Of love’s abyss

Particles


Diluted molecules
Fragments of expectations
Caught in the weave
Of insecurities
Welded together
Played with fierce
Intensity

Masks that were
Part of me
To hide the me
I could not be
Particles of possibilities
I could not lace
Together

Together?
I wish I was
Though perhaps not
Would I live
Age ossified into
Calcified, calloused certainty
Insecurities welded into predictability

I’ve learnt to love
The spaces
Between the insecurities
I’ve learnt to play with less
Intensity, and
Somewhere between the masks

There is me
