Contrast

You want to get to him
fast
so you find yourself running
driving
rushing
toward his arms
because
you see him
as the compliment
to every wish
you’ve already had
come true
but he doesn’t seem
to be moving
toward you
at quite the same speed
so you slow down
to realize
he is walking
without urgency
in your general direction
and you are suddenly
unsure
if he had any plan
to stop
once he got to you.
