From a distance (symmetry)

I turned around
And saw you there
Sitting by the vines 
You were smiling and beaming 
Busy and free
You probably don’t realise
You probably don’t care
Lost in a world of experimental genesis
engulfed in a passion of musical elegance
So confounding 
So amusing

As I stand over here
I feel a heaviness come over me
my feet begin to sink in the ground beneath,
All of a sudden you’re out of reach
And I’m still right here, struggling to breathe
I tug and tear at my ankles
But my feet won’t move
Stuck in cement, in the heavy air
Just to watch you flourish and thrive 
Without me there
