Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously


It is always that way

when it is

that the time to go
turns into time to stay

if I look like forever
it is repeated reflections
of yearning
echoing into your eyes

I will tell you now
that if you stay
I may not

you may wake
some frustrated morning

with the hangover of love
and the scent of spent candles
confusing your nostrils

wondering where I am

Then again
I may stay

and then you will imagine
that always is a possibility
and I will let you
because I like the idea
of always

even when it never happens

No matter

Either way it is time
and right now
in the moment
you can decide

even if you feel
the decision is already made

Step in
or step out

the portal won’t keep open

even if you try to hover
in your indecision

I won’t be here again
if you leave
but you know that

one chance is all you get

and even that one chance
carries the risk of everything
with a single step
