The voids in between remind me

of that propensity

pointing towards those excessive trust I embark upon

Uncontrolled insanity marked those emotions

fibbing in nerves;

it’s hard to differentiate between

the known and unknown perception,

dating back to those obsessed passions,

pressed marks vacated in haste;

leaving all of a sudden

with a kiss on the knuckle.

It somehow empowered this soul of mine,

which yearns to have you back.


My fingers intertwined with yours,

I endured the anguish

and acted swiftly;

clasped my hands together to squeeze away

the feeling of uncertainty.

Appreciable in the approach,

I saw those knuckles frozen

in the hope of rising again

sooner, to see the callus growing

in between the thickened healing of mass.


But I am forever buried in sympathy,

in the persuasion of never turning back,

not even with you to hold

between the knuckles.
