like everyone else
like i assume You are
and me with my new type of perjury
lying thickly to the teary child face
still poised on Your knee
still attached to me
but sometimes, faintly
i know i've slipped away from the cruel falsehood
of Your diverted attention
and arrive breathless from fleeing
i cant remember what i came here to say
now that i believe
in Your nearness
but how can anyone be awkward around You?
how can anyone feel at a loss with You?
maybe i didnt lose my words and my thoughts
maybe i just dont need them.
finally surprisedly willingly confined in what i came for
realizing that it was
this whole time
