i heard you

take a breath

after you said

“my partner,”

“mark”

 

as if

the weight of his name

was too heavy to hold

 

i want you to know

i have felt that way too

 

i have taken that breath

i have taken that dive

stepped off that platform

 

come out

into the light

and said

her name

 

after i said

“my partner”

too
