space | day seventeen

I just need some space, he said.

How much? How much space?

because I think the space between our fingers is just enough.

and I’d give you all of space,

stars and moon and sun and sky,

galaxies and nebulas,

all nine planets

(because Pluto still counts)

if I knew that you would come back to me.

and there’s an infinity between

when my cheek’s pressed against your chest

a million molecules in the middle

skin and bones

blood cells and muscle

separating your heart and mine

so tell me

how much space do you need?

because a million molecules

seems more than enough to me.

  1. I love the – “because the space between our fingers is enough” line it reminds me of some christian podcast I was listening to where it said to make sure you leave enough room for the holy spirit between you and your date!
