I have one foot in

I have one foot in and one foot out
a curtain between me
I cannot be all
in this world

I am blissful and despaired,
kind and mean
I’ll stay if you keep
distant and unavailable

I long for the mirage
of union with this world
a presence, a place, an intimacy

From behind glass panels
I look and I stay
where there are no
storms or conflict

a place that doesn’t exist
and the real sun doesn’t touch.
