love: a string between us

by willeya

for awhile
in 2007
i was a balloon
with no gravity
you tied me to your finger
like a boy in the market
to keep me
from
floating
away

tonight at work
you texted
“really loving
and cheering
you
back home.
we
see
you
today”

love is a string between us

except this time
our feet
are both planted
and we’re more like
two long arms
holding hands
miles away

how did you know
the moment
i questioned
unconventional me
chatting away
while the ants bite
my baby?

did i hurt your fingers
with my squeeze?

just write
