Danger’s Draw

Hesitation,

lips

wanted more,
could’ve held
but
straightened lines

bring moments of reprieve–

Still in a distance,
pulling hands
back rooms
find a…

tap into pause

suspension
(without suspicion)

strike a pose
to nothing,
feelings to stir up
again

again
say what’s missing,
drifting ways,
moon rise to fill a void.

Peeled off grip
not pulling away quickly enough,
or at all, stuck under
finger nails

Pretend you are neon signs–
which message to display today?

go on without you-blue
go on without you-pink
go on without you-orange
’til dawn.
