Some days I dwell in the distance
Watching it like water boiling
Careful not to let it boil over
from my window, I stare
Miles growing with each minute
The scene slowly growing
moving forward without me
I see it, too scared to propel myself
feet firm and stationery
Analyzing tiny details, I watch
accepting that clarity will never be mine, I hold the fear
Say hello and dive
allowing all of it–distance, fear, excitement to float and swirl
around me, within me
Some days I dwell.
Some days I dive.
