The Calm

T

in the midst of all the chaos
a hand pressed into mine
and for a moment it felt as if time had
slowed down to the millisecond

and within that frame
it was just you and me
just your eyes meeting mine,
keeping me somewhere deep within them
the whole world slipped away from
beneath my feet as that moment
ended and you vanished back into
the chaos

i will spend the rest of my life
writing about that one second
i will spend the rest of my life
grieving a love i had and didn’t all
at the same time

i come to you like the phases of the moon,
