Half of me is in love,
the way it remembers how
from the time before
remembering
took the place of being,
the other half
is suspended, weightless,
in the amniotic fluid
of all that is in store
that hasn’t yet
come to pass,
sleeping
in the womb of a dream,
senses held at bay
in the pregnant silence
when fate’s proverbial coin
turns in the air,
watching,
hungry,
hopeful,
and a thousand ways
of unsure,
resentful
and
tortured
and
emotionally paralyzed
that my future lies
in the hands of those
whose heart is not my heart
whose past is not my past,
the missing understanding
wringing out
every other feeling,
the intricacies of the present
fogged up,
frozen over,
and all the love songs
in the world fade away
swallowed by the basic,
formless drum beats
of nothing
but waiting
and I am futile and small
like a seed of a prayer
that will only awaken
with all the fire and force
and colors of the seasons
once it reaches
the warm, fertile ground
of all that is
rightfully mine.
