Can I Fall While I’m Frozen?

My heart

is made of

hands

 

Hands

are made

to hold

 

So mine must not work

 

I throw myself

into the sharp wind

for you

 

I throw myself

but never allow myself

to fall

 

Afraid

of any pain

that doesn’t come

from my homeless hand

from my sick mind

 

I dig my heels

into the wind

and claw the skies out

 

I stop

and

 

wait

 

mid-air

 

and I wonder

where are you?
