A Poem by M. Salim


A moment.
The line between
empowered
& defiant.

Holding within in it
the tenderness of our gaze.

The night calls me
sometimes
tauntingly,
while sleep escapes,
sometimes
earnestly
to show me the truth
that day hides.

It calls deep within
my being,
like you
It resonates with
my darkness,
like youyou.

With you holding my hand,
I find a way to
balance
just on the line.

Will you stay with me?
For a moment?

Of real honesty
& if you want,
silence.

The canyon of space there,
& between us
pulling me in,
like you.

A moment of
freefall
& endless endings.

So we can choose
the moment
that ensures
our happiness.

Where we find a way
to be suspended
in the warmth
between you & I.

I stand on the edge,
below, the water surges
over the rock face
deep teal and chilling
a reminder that
beautiful can also be destructive.

Like you.

In awe and wonder
I’m trapped
in these moments.
