when you love someone

when you love someone
the way i love you, fear comes and
goes, body resists

any new adjustments, afraid
of becoming comfortable

our bodies are prone

our bodies are prone
to making adjustments for
chaos – there is no

need to hold our breaths any
longer, yet we still do it

some adjustments mask

some adjustments mask
the pain better than others –
how the mind goes from

setting one to setting two
or three is all in the wrist

when memories become

when memories become
chipped, small
adjustments must
be made towards
solitude – a tweak just
below the lower rib,
a pinch between the
brows, two taps directly
on the left
atrium, a pull
on a funny bone,
a good twist above
the rest. with the
right amount of fine-
tuning, memories
unfold soundlessly

we learn to grow

we learn to grow
into each other when
we are together,
as though we were
young again, navigating
all of those
awkward moments,
learning
about the sounds
and expressions we
can make, adjusting
to the long and
short of it
. excuse
me – some things
cannot be contained
