how to be present with her

 

with some certain growth,

re-enter the spirit

and dwell in it -

 

ask her for love because

it completes a preferred truth,

and do not move away from desire

for the sake of convenience -

 

fall in love with possibilities

for the sake of dreaming,

and when you are awake,

make promises that honor

your capacity to be full -

 

(re)cycle the parts of your heart

that are content to be distracted

by longing

and call in the dimensions that

allow you rationality and hope -

 

remember what you were

when she saw you

and all the light

that drew embers from

your fingers and from your chest -

 

remember the burning words,

your poetry pouring into unrest -

 

and now at best,

 

practicing presence

hovering just above the ground

and only looking down

for balance -
