Things are never as they seem. And they can change on a dime. 🖤
The other day
I touched my fingertips to my thumb.
And, in a silent prayer, I decided then and there ~
That is what I would do with the distance between us.
I would make it disappear.
And just today…
I placed my forehead into that same hand.
In a soft whisper, I wondered whether you’d kissed her,
That is when I needed more distance between us.
I felt the requisite tears.
