“Smaller”

You are the sudden sadness

in the likeness of a stranger,

in the song

of a million trapped emotions,

or in the thing of beauty

that strangely intersects

with the joy you once gave me.

I thought you were my deep breath,

but it only rushed in

to sear my heart.

So now I take small breaths,

small ventures,

small steps,

in a smaller world…
