What breathes between us

What breathes between us?

There’s everything they say, they see,

there’s the ugly (unlikely) secret that we hold back,

there’s the big feeling we get,

glimmers of togethers faraway;

half forgotten, half why we’re here again.

Then, there is our holy unnamed

-our pearl, our treasure that makes us better,

and then there’s the space;

breathing in floating fates,

sinking with our end’s weight,

the together-space

is our child that caused you and me,

unwanted and inevitable, let it grow, let it be.
