repair

repair

Stagnant,
stuck in
an endless loop
we dance
in circles.
Neither willing
to step into
each other’s company.
That give and take,
to and fro,
back and forth,
could mend us,
but we’re so afraid
of tripping
of reopening
ourselves,
old wounds,
of being close,
we don’t try.

Poetic Asides

The challenge was to write about repair.
