more than just us….

bring me your human form as you understand it
let me wrap the leaf of myself around you
our heartbeats will fall into rhythm and the outside
world will ignore us as we ignore them.

outside world is waiting for us to complete ourselves
charcoal sketch of a small pause
then separate and continue moving forward before
we can return to be one again

and i am one with you
always with you where you go
separation is for the fearful and we showcase our fear
sculpt it into something more
trusting ourselves and more than ourselves

there is more than us
there is more than just us
there is more than us being just us
just us here
but not just us – there is more than us
– love and trust……
