I could draw back
or I could run forward.
But you want me to embrace
the now.

My eyes are keener –
perhaps –
than they should be.
They think they know what’s coming.

And the thought of being separated
from what I’ve come to expect
shakes something inside of me.
I’m aching in my chest.

Why another hole in me?
Will this pattern continue
indefinitely?
Love. Lose. Love again.

Do these holes give
dimension to my life?
Or simply steal my life away?
Questions. Empty questions.

My one consolation?
My Constant Companion.
Eternal wholeness is coming.
No more separation.
