Expanse

An ocean between what we know,
What we want to believe
and what we need to have inside us,
To go on.
Vast.

And I am here, now
But if I stop telling myself that – even just for a second,
Then I am overcome,
Overcome.

I am here, now.

All that has changed, and that which hasn’t
Is all we have

Everything has changed then
And nothing, too

This ocean still vast
This expanse still wide
And I still cannot go there – I could never actually go there

But my heart is different here, now
Less steady,
Somehow.
