a poem about communication and the power of simply just reaching out.

There’s nothing more powerful than words
Adheres me to you, just knowing I am on your mind
I feel a tad bit lighter
My steps feel effortless like I had some inborn grace
And I want to love you
To feel the revelation that I am totally at ease and boneless
So please keep in touch
Write to me when you feel alone
I’ll remind you of every long good bye
Last words left slurred or unfinished
What did you want to say?
Say it now
And you’ll never have to feel alone
Tell me to write to you when I feel alone
Left pacing or stir crazy
Sometimes it’s enough to just get out and feel the wind on my face
Other times I just want to shout that I am here
And I’m tired of feeling like I’m waiting
Write to me, tell me about freedom
Give it facets, give it form
Sometimes let it be a place
Our own secret club
I live with reality day in and day out
Tell me of another place
Beyond smoke and mirrors
A place full of dew and the pounding of horse hooves
More than anything else tell me I’m not alone.
And you know where I stand
If I could I’d hold your hand
Tell me one day we will truly meet
I want to sit on your lap like lovers do
Sit in silence like only soul mates can do
Corresponding with nuances.
I know you’d never leave me feeling alone
You’d simply kiss me
And I’d know every moment you were away, you were thinking of the stories you could tell me.
How all of this would amuse me.
