blessed xenia

let's love one another
even though it makes us strange.
as this smile bubbles up from my chest
i am drowning in reverse.
and good, that slow drip creates such a tense atmosphere
but every heart is calmed by running water.
let's not hold back anymore.

he asked me, "you're scared?" the words, inflections
flecked with disbelief and nonchalance.
i found my tongue and lips in motion, saying, "perpetually."
