we hide from ourselves the things we need to know but aren’t ready to believe

those pictures
that you took
in the room
where we slept
and didn’t sleep

we touched places
that weren’t meant to be seen
and missed the ones that were

the things
that kept us together
eventually pulled us apart

lines drawn
that led nowhere in particular
we thought they were there
to let us know
which side was which
and we picked our sides
if not our battles
but neither side ever won
we just passed out
in each others arms

not as much out of love
as out of exhaustion

we travel around the sun
and the sun travels around us
our connections may be loose
but our bonds seem so tight
we feel stuck sometimes
anchored to a path
we are not sure we belong on

but they say what binds us
to the earth we walk
can also make us fly

those pictures
that you took
in the room
where we slept
and didn’t sleep

they look like
we felt

on nights
warm like these
and through days
colder
than we could have imagined
