responsible

By: Shelbi Henny

Breathing in the existing piece
whispering into the darkest nights
I see the transformation in your eyes
gleaming light protruding into shadows
the closeness seeming bare
raw to fantasize 
over possibilities that drown in you
covering the sanity 
of tremendous despair
closing on the interaction that seemed real
though we hold distance 
kissing memories in the wind
smothering this 
in prosperity we connect beyond the stars
knowing nothing of tactful force
this is just who we are
wonderers of the words we express
and the actions we never understand
writing stories of timeless fights
we play in moments that we fear
