Space between

The space between,
Anticipation,
Expectation.

A pause,
Hyphenated,
Before and after.

Full stops of the mind,
The moment elongated,
Pressurised yet vacant.

Punctuated.
By.
Constant.
Interruption.

Soft smiles,
Sheer delight,
Sticky hands hold,
The joy.

The shadows,
Of former selves,
Linger.
Chastise.

The giggles,
Bubble over,
Light slivers,
Permeate.
Drowning out,
The darkness behind.
