between you&i

brightly shining stars
with outstretching arms-
the imagined space between
you&I, dazed by
far off reflections

a speechless heart
sinking deeper

so, desperately trying
to cast aside the blinding light,
caution to the wind-

i'm reaching out
i'm moving forward
with guidance/
out-reaching arms
to grasp this invisible thread
connecting you&i
(& you are…)

a trembling echo
of this new found voice

promises that have to be broken
risks that have to be taken.

through fading spaces &
into the embrace
of brilliantly dreaming stars,
holding onto you&i


(because, i am…)
