I wake up from dreaming
We still go to the same places.
We are now friends with different people
who will avoid confrontation
who won't stand for a challenge.
Your eyes search my stillness for discomfort
- there was never an answer
you couldn't draw out from my body -
my shoulders scream
I'm mad at you for parting
I'm mad at myself for waiting.
My knees confess
I wish you walked toward me
And occupied all the empty spaces.
