A Matter of Love


several sources on the internet


What is reach?

Is it overcome
or forget
or regret?

How does it smell?

When did he first notice
the far-off look in her gaze?
When and where the stutter
in his heartbeat at night?

Reach is arms
brought to you by love
in the starless morning
wrapped around you
a blanket against
cold unreality.

She pulls you in close
snuffles softly between
your shoulder blades
before you reach
the next state of unconsciousness.

This is reach.
