worlds and wants

this sloppy city energy
is spilt on the sidewalk
dripping down city hall

i am closing all my senses
moving through the dark felt sky
a meditation on your body
fuels my flight

it is there, submerged in the stillness
that i remember why i chose you

the miles can’t restrain my pulse
when every thought
turns to the shape of you
every intention
moves us toward the edge
the blurred space
between here and there
between worlds and wants

my world
i want
