May 2017
Today it almost slipped
Those words right off your lips
You know the ones I speak of
As our bodies aligned
Eclipse

And in my chair
Haphazardly
I sat, not scared to fall
You walked right up
Behind me
Leaned over me and
Stalled

Remember when you
Whispered
My name into my ear
I almost felt you say it
Those words I know we
Fear

I often wonder what it'd sound like
Not to read them or
Imagine in my head
For you or I to claim it
And yet we hesitate
Instead
