space

space
i love the space between us
almost as much
as i love when there is
no space between us

it is in this space
i write to you
and know i love you

but i could wish
that 65 miles
was 65 inches
and that when we are done
being alone
it was easy
to be together


Have I mentioned that I do really poorly in smothering or controlling relationships? Part of what did that one in was his trying to assert control over how much space there was for whom. The dramatic show down came about following a night I didn’t sit where he wanted me to sit but didn’t ask me to sit. I have smart readers, I don’t think I need to explain the problems with that.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2.5 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
