Common Ground





Years slipped so fast they slow to a murky fog in memory

Recalling nights of starlit kisses and glittering fireworks

Our eyes allied with the moon and the shimmering stars

You — an enchanting Monet


Yet we couldn’t find footing on day-lit common ground 

My feet ached to stand firmly fixed with yours though

So I tried to be with you by climbing upon your back 

A heavy burden — obscured


You stepped out from under the weight and stood alone

I carefully felt for footing underneath my ethereal being

Seeking ground of my own, a base of bedrock to build upon

Solid earth — a foundation


Still wishing for a shared space now 

My cold feet — your unruly brow
