  • You pull without
    meaning to draw
    me in
    Somehow my feet move
    under me and I feel
    myself go

    I end up next to you
    in the middle
    of the day

    Where were you before
    you were beside me?

    What were you before
    you were my gravity?

    You pull and
    I don’t bother to
    tug back

    I move towards you
