Somewhere between

stars                     and                     tears

I slipped through a crack.

Maybe before

I lied on the olefin carpet,

I’d snuck my heart

into the back of your jeans.

I think I lost grip

when you slid your fingers

into mine.

When you touched

the back of my hand

and placed your head

on my shoulder,

your hair brushed my cheek.

And my feet

kissed the ground.

I fell in love with you.
