Like that

I can’t tell how it feels

Your nerves fire sssst 

Mine tingle and  snap

~

can tell you it is like…

that first sip of coffee.

too hot to swallow fast

smelling rich of memory

~

I can’t tell how it feels

Your presence draws

Mine pushes too hard.

~

can tell you it is like…

that first blossom in spring

the one waiting to open

the one you smell in sleep

~

can’t tell you how it feels.

Your coolness like a shadow

My seeking the side of sun.

~

can tell you it is like…

knowing the song in two bars

every word, in your voice

singing my missing parts.

~

I can’t tell you how it feels.

Your voice close as breath.

My heart pounding hard.

~

I can tell you it is like…

Finding the missing  part

inside a long packed box

treasure packed too long.

~

I can’t tell you how it feels.

You right there to touch.

Me, afraid and yet brave.

~

I can tell you it is like…

Like that, that one thing.

that makes it all make sense

that makes it worthwhile.

~

Like that. Always like that.

 

Claudia has us sharing emotions, without naming the emotion, for MEETING AT THE BAR for dVerse tonight. Mine has a mix of emotions, the ones you would find after being away from a loved one for a bit too long, with a bit too much stress, worry and a lot of faith guiding the way. Enjoy the other poets, and remember leave love!
