This started out as a rant...
on some political thoughts,
went in a different direction

You are...

I
am
resonating
your heart beat,
distant desires,
the metronome.
The shallow
dark
thumping
in distant hallow;
marking
the tick-toc
of your walk,
emphasising
softness
in your talk.
Always
measuring,
scaling,
your ailing
heart.

I am
the silent beat
energizing
dancing feet;
maching
the soul's joy
to keep
dreams
from falling
asleep.
The essence,
metering
your core;
ebbs and flow,
rhythm,
of the water,
shifting
the breeze
in waves
upon the seas.

I
am
the silence
beyond
heart thumps,
weighting time;
silence between
each tick-toc
are yours
to wane
with pain,
joy,
smiles,
or shame;
the call is yours
to name...
your life, your game...

I
Am...
You
Are...
