outlying tread

there is a time of only. when
he leant in. she inhaled
scents of soap and cigarettes. moments
lingering.
leaves changing. releasing to season.
salt trail remains.
long damp locks still chilled with shower.
perpetual thirst awaits the next drink.
silence.
lips touching. goodbyes chasing. before he spoke.
she wanted to say.

i am never present.

phases of forget. times
to best recall. the shape of his words.
texture of his skin. the way
she ensures. to master
keeping down.
her tightrope walk. his chase of more.
she craves compare and appreciates
his categorization.
ones that stand out would rather
stand low. subtracting exposure.
she wishes best. she locks herself.

away.
