Of the heat between the sparks
Of the breaths between two lungs.
Of the time between metronome beats.
Of the view halfway down.
Of the things I write:
The silence,
And of all the things we do not say.

The author's comments:

A poem about the inexplainable things and the things we don’t talk about. It’s not socially acceptable to ask these questions and discuss these topics out loud because it’s too strange and too heavy a subject. Instead, we’re left to l doubt in the silence left in our wake.

If I only could, I surely would.
I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet."
