Noun that I've been watching (84)

duct tape.

what I thought
I would not say
I said so you
would recognize
compare contrast the is
with is-not
in the mind of
the beheld

when I think of stepping back
letting you go
my body dances a mild dance
my heart remembers safety
that was not safe
I keep my eyes fastened
on you and on
your face

I factor an invented
kindness that I might
attribute to your place
within me
harsh magnetic
laced with residue
