subway trains and you

there’s a striking resemblance
to what i feel when the subway train comes,
and what i feel when you do.

a fear.
fear of falling down on the rails,
just as the train would pass.
fear of falling in your arms,
of falling in love too fast.

an exhilaration.
of when the wind of its speed blows my hair
and feel the movement whip past me.
of when i thought we’re doing great,
but at the same time, too quickly.

a relief.
of knowing the world still turns,
it still goes on for others.
when mine has stopped,
for your eyes have those kind of powers.

there’s a striking resemblance
to what i feel when the subway train comes,
and what i feel when you do.

you take home closer to me,
and take me closer to you.
