Drifting

Sometimes it’s the small things

The beat

The moment

The suspension of attention

When a screen is more interesting than you

When the laugh is somehow disconnected

The look is skips a beat and no longer lingers

When the fondness is still there but distracted

And those small things

Combined with a name

A glance at the wrong moment

Hold your breath

Feel the kiss

And then the truth

It’s all in your head

Relief

Distance is un-quantifiable

Between breaths

Between beats

But when its there

Your heart sinks

Or the delusion

Is it all in your head?

Sometimes it’s the small things

The beat

The moment

The suspension of attention

And you suddenly realise…

You’re… drifting

Falling fast

When you get sucked in
You fall too fast…
Not knowing, just grasping at life and tripping into love
Happy and oblivious to the depth
The depth of your feelings, your love
Dependency
Love.
A rush, a lightness, a gleeful intoxication
It crawls under your skin, into your heart
Steadfast
Rock solid grasp
Defiance
Love.
