People like us.

Caught between the tension of

coming closer

retreating to safety

standing at the edge of the fire

craving warmth

fearing the burn

it’s different here for

people like us

pacing like two tigers

who have been caged

wounded

bruised

our scars are similar

some still tender

ripe with possibility

salvation

annihilation

and so we

pace.
