Captured

Poem By Lynne RBC

You came
just when my arms were
too weak
and I could only
speak
the cravings
of a retiring heart.
I tried a mask
but you saw through me
naked
disconcerted.
You watched me drop
one step
at a time
but caught me
when I was
trying to stop.
I knew
you wanted this fall;
you knew
how I desired the catch.

You captured me
as I did you.

Still
there are bruises.

If I release it to the sky

Hesitate not to penetrate
like a wide-eyed kid
who eternally flips the pages.
For surely he can never unravel

If I make faces and paste a smile,
will you forget originality

I met a soldier.
He said
there is a

Today, I will begin the story

I will start to impart

You intended it
to end
I did too.
We tried.
