My body is heavy with this distance
I am weighted in my footfalls,
Touching slabs, stepping stones
In my mind I touch your face.
I ache to flutter fingers over skin
To match with body the fluttering felt within.
This corporeal existence irks and irritates
Rooted in this realm I reach outwards
Plants turn their flowers to the sun.
Let me ape and imitate
Feel the heart heat warm my face.
My body betrays me.
