a kiss

if if were real
and i could hold it in your hand
that would be a blessing
for my reality

when you become actual
a little at a time
i can kiss tiny pieces
until you are whole

as time draws circles
around our embrace
slowly tightening it’s grasp,
i rejoice amidst the pressure
squeezing us into one

when when has space
enough to breathe
i inhale deeply
filling my entire being
with you

now is then
when we first were we
fighting through a wave
for something
we might have known
would set us on a path
to somewhere
we still exist

i stay awake all week
dreaming of you
and when we finally meet
those words
that changed our course
forever
a kiss
