Unpause

What if my blink lasts an extra beat more
Unintended, I cannot explain

What if while this, my inhale I implore
Is reality seeking to feign?

Gravity, come, take your match by the hand
Ether has waited for this

Fluttering eyes, staccato breath
So much words culminate in a kiss

Your Vortex

Where is the ether of you

You cannot be nowhere
Yet, I cannot find you anywhere

Never by my side
Never to my rescue
Never where I need you
Always, those days and these

I live as a void, a vortex
Forever, a you-shaped yearning
