Forward Marching

he. drenched. me.
in words…
(pervading flavor of time)
… i walked a backward step.
where contentment does
not contain. withstand. a grip
vowing. false. scribbled. agreement.

i suddenly. started
learning his language.
and. do you know
he said…
that’s the way it’s supposed to be.
i collapsed to comfort of gratitude.
thank god you came back.

i walked a backward step…
downward tumbling. stomach
capture. of a moment. prior to
time where the lie of what can be
while what is walks. trips.
