statue

staring dumbly,
mutely,
without affect,
mouth agape,
eyes dull,
half open,
hands resting
gently in my
lap, waiting
for something
to change
this statue
I have become

you come alone
into my space,
draw my gaze,
I greet you “Hi”,
my eyes grow
round, a little wet,
hands reach out
to grasp yours,
magnificent,
I stand tall and
we embrace,
my statue
crumbles at
your touch
