I would like to hold your hand

A simple request that can’t be met

Days and days between our time

People and places between our lives

 

I write you letters, you sing me songs.

Maybe this time next year our distance won’t be so long.

 

I can wait with you on my mind.

Rather feel your skin against mine.

 

I whisper I love you,

your secret to keep.

You hold me closer like I am you.

 

Your skin is soft,

your face is sweet, your hands are gentle,

your voice deep.

I listen close to every word.

I wrap your words around my waist.

I’m not sure, how much longer can I wait…

I broke myself apart into pieces of each self I knew

I offered definitions descriptions explanations

stories

songs

all the words I could find to say look at me and everything that I am

I am this and I am that and sometimes there and sometimes here

I spread my words across sheets of endless paper,

     this time they will know me.

 

When they told me I was not who I said I was I told them they were who I knew them to be.

They were thieves and liars and colonizers and rapists and murderers and deniers of every truth that ever met them.

 

I set myself a space to breathe.

I gathered all those parts of me and held each one close to speak.
