question

i bring with me the question
that sits uncomfortably on your tongue
a frequency that permeates
throughout your heart and lung
a dance with volatility
and shadows once unearthed

if you wish to grow old
but the damage within
is the true story untold

about the one i love
if i forget
about today’s worries
yesterday’s hurts and
tomorrow’s projections

if i remember

chaotic spaces. . .
