Push ~ Pull

There’s this place I go
when I feel crowded
inside myself;
when love gets too close
and it feels like I’m losing me.

I go up on the mountain
and feel the sun and air
full of nothing all around me
where no one can touch me.

It feels good
to stretch my soul out
as far as it’ll go
up on the mountain
…in my mind.

And sometimes when I feel
the cold-hard edge
of too much space
I take myself to a different place.

It’s when I want to be
surrounded, filled and warm
that I close my eyes
and feel myself wrapped
up in your arms.
