My bedside.

Between anticipation and definition,

Alliance and separation,

Between attraction and freedom,

A speck of dust in my eye,


Between the elusive and clarity,

Going and staying,

Between your stringent kindness

And my pedantic longing,

My world sits still,

In this space between,


Stay or go,

Motionless in thoughts,

Time scatters,

Counting syllables of your name.
