the way they seem to leave without ever really going away

the ground
is just a part of the sky
that i walk on
and on my best days
i can’t tell the difference

your body
is just a part of mine
that i reach for
when i want to touch myself
but can’t find out
where i am

where am i
i may not exist at all
except as we
and we may not exist at all
except as i
or you
it really goes on like this
forever

is that what we wanted
is that what we asked for
when we said
forever
maybe we just didn’t realize
how forever worked

there are no beginnings
and ends
there is just the way
things come together
without ever having been apart
and the way they seem to leave
without ever really going away

it is the same canyon that
is running down the center
of our land
between us
inside us
when we see it
it makes us feel broken

but the crack isn’t where we are coming apart
it is where we are coming together
