Be Still

A lapse in awareness
perhaps a return
to the years spent single
when she was allowed
to shut down

A book marked by finger
closed to better take in
the world of the wall
still blank before her
unadorned in an us

A private peace appropriated
till she catches me
and smiles
melting back into motion
my heart
