And all I can really tell you is I like you so very much,
and I have never been to this point before.
It’s so frightening and full terror,
it’s so beautiful and astonishing.
This only makes me wonder how powerful the waves could be,
how strong the storm really is,
how terror the quakes bring,
beyond this point.
I wish I could explore those spaces;
But the more time I spend with you,
the more I realize that’s not what the future holds.
sleeping deeply within me
is shaken by this fact
and starts resurfacing, making my heart and soul muddy.
So close you are,
within my arm’s reach.
And so far you are,
held far away in a tower of joy.
