this departing that never arrives
I walk alone with only short stops
in between
the many laughs
that accompany me
your eyes, your hands, your smiles
at different times
you touch the insistent
that’s never satisfied
I always know I found something
I need
by how it cuts
when you take it away
learning to lose lightly
when my fingers loosen suddenly
numb from weights too heavy
grip slips as if not meaning to
so I lift with my back
and stride with my legs
each step tattoos the path
without regrets and never give up
I propel my wave and move ahead
surging unstoppable
like the name
they gave my flow
styled like a storm
in your face
I breathe life at the undeniable price
of so much fullness
the intrinsic solitude of singularity
