Stillness

There’s a stillness

That arrives

When

The chaos and anxiety

Reach

A fever pitch-

An uneasy equilibrium

Caused by too much

Vibration,

Creating a calm surface

Tension

That hides the

Pandemonium of emotion

Below.

Reality

It’s not the asthma

Making it impossible

To breathe.

The tightness

In my chest,

The straw

I’m breathing through,

Won’t go away

With the use

Of an inhaler.

The elephant

Sitting on me

Isn’t

Scared of mice or looking for peanuts,

And it certainly doesn’t fly.

I can’t pretend

I can’t

Pretend

It doesn’t

Hurt,

Even though

It’s not supposed to,

And I’m not

Even allowed to hurt,

Because it’s not

My right to

Own the hurt

To begin with.

I get it.

I understand.

But I still

Hurt,

And I still

Ache

For everything

We didn’t have-

It’s still mine,

In my dreams,

And I’m keeping it all,

Along with the memories.

There’s only so much

I can

Let go of,

Publicly

Or privately,

So the rest

Remains

All mine,

No matter what.

The other shoe

As far as I’m concerned,

The other shoe

Can go

Fuck itself.

No more shoes-

Dropping,

Or otherwise.

Fuck the shoes,

And how they ruin

The floors

Of my heart,

How they scuff

My soul

And trample

My love.

I don’t want them around

Anymore,

Not even sandals.

I just want

To be

Barefoot,

Naked,

And alone

With you

Again,

And for forever.

Fuck the other shoe.

Screw both shoes.

I want you.

But leave the shoes

Outside

By the door,

And away from me-

Away from us.
