Tidal Lock

as I thought of us

connected at magnetic poles

~

showing the same face

each day of burning passion

calming hellish storms

~

i knew we would

outlast each other’s

orbit.

Fantasists

we became those people overnight,

fantasists who daydream holding

hands and speak in whispers of ‘true love’

like nothing came before a kiss across

the console of a Chevy Cruz or

will exist without space curvature

across the low points of

our spines…

~

i’ve fanned the flames

and lost myself in

your geometry.
