Joycelyn Fish
Reflexivity


I hide
Waiting
For affection

Today,
Only glance
Hustling to leave

Abandoned
In reality
Sleek, shiny, smooth

I remain
Stuck
Beyond the frame

Finally,
You return
Brushing past again

Dread begins
As you turn
Away from me

Yet,
There you are
Returning as a prodigal

Forgiven
As always
Answering beckon call

You lean close
The heat of your breath
Steaming vision

We are nearly one
Sharing a delusion
Reversing our views

You move - I move

Synchronized
No practice
Needed

You pull back
Studying me
Studying you

You twist
Searching for an angle
To satisfy

Look. At. Me.

Our eyes
Lock
Longing for answers

A sigh
Of disappointment
Never enough

Love - no
Happiness - no
Beauty - no

Turning away
Disgusted
We part

No knowledge
Running
Away

I retreat
Beyond
Our shared world

Waiting
To play along
Once more
