Escaping air



I’ve been ditching and dodging you

Suffocating the words stretching

to come out

above the low waters

Dreading my tread around your pools

of unsure trembles


Your love has become hard

like the cracked desert face

Plagued with drops of doubt and incomplete care


You don’t wander past my mind or

tickle my heart anymore


My yearning for your being has diluted 


The position of your presence and energy

remains empty until your renewed return
