Frantic.

As you looked into my eyes

and just said, “hi.”

To be seen; it frightens me.

In this space with no voice,

no breathe, no air.

Warrior without weapon

weak, wounded, wary.

Will you love me, value me,

When I am not strong?

and…

“Hi”

breath

“hi”

breathe

“Hi”

For Julie Rowland.  Who met me in my breathlessness- and just looked into my eyes and only asked for “hi.”  I am grateful.
