If I Can Slow You Down

If I can slow you down

To the point

Where walls collapse

Where worlds collide

Into a single moment

Where we stand toe to toe

To share a look

Bare our souls

Then I will have achieved something

Transcendent

Worthy of this artistry

Shared

Revealed

Celebrating invention and delight

Shouting freedom

Curiosity

Rebellion

 

No authority holds us in check

Propriety or politesse

Just the measure of each moment

Each breathe

 

The realization of what’s right

 

For you

For me

Tonight
