The Space Between (and how do I bridge this gap?)

He’s filling up
and spilling over
the edges,
at the corners now;
of every waking
hour,
and all the hours,
I’m not sleeping,
wondering,
what does he
mean?
when he speaks
of the
muscles
of the face,
my face,
as he calculates –
is he calculating?
and taking
all such accurate
measurements
needed to know
and like –
does he like?
such as the
amount of space
between
the eye sockets?
or the slight rise
in cheekbones
gravity can’t
and will not have
its way with.

I don’t know,
but what I do know;
how lovely
I think he is –
and I want him.

    Very nice! I don’t like gaps that need bridges. I like space but not gaps
