Nice to meet you

I’ve realised how distant I’ve become

from almost everyone,

aside from the man who shares my bed.

And I’m not too sure when it begun,

this slow retraction of my hands and feet

until I am floating midair with relief,

wondering how many would be there beneath

if I were to fall.

So, I guess this is hello,

a nice to meet you again,

and apology without the right words

which says ‘I am sorry for being me,

for running away unnecessarily

any moment life feels too thick

to walk through with anyone other

than myself’.
