recognizing love can sometimes

there are words you

there are words you
wish you can say only
in water – words from
which you can swim

know how they
surfaced, floating equal
distance
between two
desperations still treading
allegiance, waiting
to be saved

whether we knew
it was coming or
not. our wits
have a way of lying
so perfectly
to our bodies, all
of a sudden, a
stalemate
does not seem
so sudden
