31-29

back and out below the fall.
below the change. below it all.
it’s where you stand and wait
and i stand and watch
and we both stand, just too far apart, looking at each other. speaking to each other. in more than words and phrases that we throw away with these distant,
hope-filled
gazes.
challenge my faith, test my courage, crack my bones and push me further into all of this, you won’t see me back away.
no.
you won’t see me fail or break.
no.
you won’t see me, from so far away, looking at you without love in my gaze. without hope in my stare. without courage in the tears that fall for the all of this. you won’t see me shake at all. you won’t,
because i won’t.
i cross my heart.
i won’t.
