my breath



my breath
this is not about love
nor how a soul
finds solace
sometimes
in incidental burrows
it stumbles upon
why "fits like a glove"
cliche or not
has much prevalence
in realms
of idolatrous metaphor
nor why
alone
although so brief
is such firm companion
of longing
& angst
oh no
this is simply
about why
on the spur of a moment
a smile grows & glows
inexplicable
when intentional gazes interlock
yes
it's all about
impermanence
my cloud.

Oh my. My cloud. To each other we are wisps, though solid seeming at times. There are no hard edges, but soft folds which might lay themselves out, and might just as easily sew themselves closed.

over some things, we do not have control...

Je ne pensais pas pouvoir m' intéresser à autre chose que l' âme ou l' amour, voilà qui est fait!
