let them ring!

distances between us(measured in emotions

take fear(that distancing mechanism
that shrinks us from our natural heights
and makes us smaller in black nights
and withdraws us from another's touch
because of what has happened(much
can never be expanded upon/when
silence is a fearful song/and embraces fail when
touch is anathema to them
Hold and huddle,cuddle and cure
reassurance /energies pure/more
can be bridged with smiles than
fear of being burned again

and love(that outlaw)whose domain
trespasses upon spaces sovereign
reduces distance faster than
rockets falling like stars to ground

there are distancing mechanisms-
they are akin to poisons in the system
Sometimes you can measure them
by the way they kill all that they touch
'or reduce it to less than much

this is why emotional territories
explore distances quite personally
