Janus & me

when you’re with me, I
feel it, that spark.
my mind is calmed
and my body is
present. our bodies
speak to each other
in their own language.

it’s just
when you’re not physically
here that I doubt
and make myself crazy
second-guessing – you,
me, both of us,
the whole thing.

I don’t mean
to be of two minds,
and therefore
have two faces.
I bet Janus
didn’t mean
to be that way
either.
