I focus my eyes on what’s ahead of me
Slowly I start to walk
One step at a time
Breath by breath
Image bigger, distance shorter
Within reach, I extend my hands
Eyes on the prize

About to grasp-
I am reeled back.
Cuffed to you
Encompassed in everything that is you
The skeleton of my past
I look back…No!
I was so close, just an inch away from-
The hands start to form
The warmth of its devious and empowering touch
The lips-they resurface on the face
A perfect upright crescent taunts me
Calls my name knowingly, compellingly
Synchronizes to the beat of my heart
And finally the eyes
An open door awaiting my misstep
They give me a comforting soul-deep stare
A friendly glare, reminder of what was
And what should never be again
Pulling me in…helplessly
I’d focus my eyes ahead of me, but
I’m too busy gazing into the eyes that were once lurking behind me.
