separate

by eloisehendy

in these rooms
 we gathered
    ourselves
 we huddled
 from the storms
 we tried
 to keep
    ourselves
 together

i am scattering

i can feel

little by little

these things
 we gathered
    ourselves
 coming apart

i can feel

the pull

of the storm

i can feel

the eye

in these rooms
 we made
    ourselves
 we thought
 we were
grander and wiser and
a little
less
lost
in the storm

i can sense

the separation

it is thrilling

can you feel

the vibrations
at the corners of 
the skin
the haze
at the corners of

the eye

it is awful

you are sublime

in these rooms
we were
   ourselves
we were
   lost
we were
   sublime

in these rooms
we had so much
and
yet ultimately
so little time
