too heavy

they flip to face the heavens,
but still rest on my leg –
hands too heavy to lift regardless my plea.

my lips begin to repeat litanies without any authority from me.
until there is

silence.

an unbearable pause positioning itself
like forest between a lover and the Beloved.

and only until there is unspoken recognition,
a humbling,
do my hands ease and my soul smiles.

the Beloved knows the state of the lover
despite the forest.

Respond to too heavy
