{June 21, 2013}   Separation Anxiety

separation anxiety
hovers on my horizon
earlier than usual this year
it comes around like clockwork
ever-presently dependable
ensuring my inevitable protective chill
a pre-emptive strike
to get me through the summer
the cloak and dagger part of this yearly performance
hides behind the shrubbery
waiting in silence for the sign
watching the sky like a hawk
eyes on the prize
simmering underneath it all i am willingly back-burnered
too understanding to let it go
my overflowing heart beats slow and steady
in it for the long haul
or, as long as you keep me breathing
they are, after all, one and the same
