Coincidence 2

1
Coinciding
Colliding
Timing
Arriving
To us

We coincide
For a second
In the universe

Of space
Of time

Surviving in us
Desire

2
We wrote songs
For eachother
& jokes
We wrote jokes

Not many
But enough
Of everything
For a moment

3
For several weeks
I sheltered my fears
In love you maybe
Never believed
Was there

4
I told you the stories
Would be all that would
Be borne of it

& even though you
Took away the stories
Leaving gaps
Continuity
Run errors
The software
Made my stories
Possible

Out of everything lost
Somehow art was
Of us grown
& flourished

5
I woke up
For you
& then I slept
For you too

Too many hours
Of despair
In their lair
Waiting to repair

6
Maybe you didn’t realize
Your own power
& I overestimated mine
While I watched you
Ignore the difference

Such oversight breaks you
Blinds you
Photophobia
Burning against
Sunshine

7
Documents of corruption
Plenty of interruption
Divine intervention
Can’t fix every problem
