Poetry/Prose

You

Here You sit

More space than matter,
Atomically speaking
Commanding every space
Between every molecule
That collects under the definition:

You

But what is that?
Where does ‘You’ end?
Are ‘You’ what the tide brings in?
Or what it takes away
From those who love ‘You’?

Flowing In and out
Change immortal

Try to grab a retreating wave
And laugh, laugh, laugh
Because ‘You’ knew ‘You’ couldn’t
And tried anyway
Just like ‘You’ thought ‘You’ knew
Who ‘You’ were
Until today
When ‘You’ woke up
Looked in the mirror
And saw the space between
All those molecules—‘You’
That they were not much more
than the space between

‘You’ and someone else

And ‘You’ feel it now, don’t you?

What I talk about?
Like sitting in the sand
That recedes right under ‘Your’ rump
As the waves pull back
Leaving ‘You’ deeper
Closer
Yet still so far away
From alone
