Day 53 – she wanders

Day 53
2:47 pm – 3:13 pm

she wanders

around the room at night
she wondered about the
pairing of our shadows

she watched the way
i danced with her
without knowing

there is an overlap
that occurs in flashes
between crashes and beats

she whispered a verse to me

and i had no idea
what she said
but it was meant to be that way

i was not to realize a thing
until much later, not even
when she hinted at a glance

while talking through a story
on someone else
but it was in that glance

where i caught her whisper
