Dwelling Connection

You stand next to me
inches from my shoulder
you act like you're busy
reading test papers from folders

and I feel something heavy
you own inside and out
it could be gravity
on the other way 'round.

My legs decide to stay
i can't and would not move
I would feel alive forever
if I stayed right here with you

you turn your back away to leave
my heart begs for you to stay
gravity turns to its primary point
pulling me down without delay.

And that's when I wonder
did you feel it as well?
Or is it me that owns this gravity
in which I thought you dwelled?
