Is there a word

For the space between the pause

Where we stopped

And where we begin – again

——-

I want a word for the empty chairs

Where I first saw her

You

Us

I want a word for all of those moments

Collective

Spread out like a canvas

Over this pause

It’s not just currency

It’s spaces between space

These small moments

Like atoms

In the margins

They make up our lives

I want a word

For all of these empty spaces

I keep looking

Hoping I’ll find us there….

Where we once met

Now silence incomplete

Like the pause in a storm

All I see are these memories

Pulled out from the inside of time

Keep yours

Keep mine

——-

Can you hear sunlight

When it touches water?

Can you hear the keys of the piano

Before the music has been written?

——

I can hear us in the morning

Breathing with the sunrise

Coming back to ourselves

——

I want a word

That hasn’t been written yet

But I feel it in you…
