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


Worthy of this artistry



Celebrating invention and delight

Shouting freedom




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
