Stay in touch

All day and night, I tried to stifle

my impulse to reach out to you.

Silly, that, since already I had

touched you in the space that connects us.

We were communing

in that place where hearts meet.

It is a mind game

to pretend that we cannot read

each other’s hearts.

We thoughtfully analyze

and reason leads us to the desert.

Dry, fatigued, in imagined safety

we shelter in a sliver of shade

and all the while

our hearts are singing to each other,

our souls are giving the lessons

we agreed to give

long before we opened our eyes

to this merry-go-round

of appearances,

the dizzy distractions,

the roadblocks,

the mazes that all

eventually lead us back

to our deep connection.

Inspired by The Daily Word Prompt: stifle
