When the Time Comes



Approaching Horizon, Anna Swerts, 2019


when the time comes
it will arrive with a vengeance
you will not know what touched you
nor what to do or feel or say


in love, we are always on a cliff
do we jump not knowing where we may land
not knowing how it will feel
if and when we do


or do we step back in a futile attempt
to protect emotions that have no destiny
whose future has no future
whose past clutches furtively at its present
