living beauty

Barely alive 
living beauty
that day you ran
and the sun hugged
your shoulders and
laughed and the sweet
grass tickled your
toes and the dog
licked your face and
you lay down, down
in green blue gold
bursting, bursting 
loose all binds. 
No, no you are
not far away,
away from here, 
not tied down, down
to any thing.

Your fingers envelope
my palm, 
crunch of 
pebble on pavement,
–—exhale.
Loneliness is greedy,
gulping air thick
and silent.
How does it work,
my being
with you and
yet needing
needing other
companionship too?
A friend who loves you 
who loves me who loves you
who loves me who loves you
who loves me
who loves me.
I am not okay here,
my lungs
compressing,
my mouth
gasping in
this static void
love me
love me
where you are not.
