between us

between us is but a fence

climbing over

and I lose a little smile


between us is but a door

you, in one room waiting

I, in the other, tussling


between us is but one heart

running over

and I miss a little tug


between us is but little

you, who gave me love

she, whom I gave love




I crumbled

I crumbled in despair

by the weight

of his mighty hands



to be free from

impurities & bondage..

in my powdery lightness

as he would

he then immerses me

into his kindred spirit

kneading me back into clay

formed me

into a new vessel

baked to his will

before he gave me

to you..
