White space

Those in-between moments
when the harsh, austere world
interrupts
us — like ink on newspaper
disrupting
an otherwise bare home where time
isn’t written — may momentarily
distract

me but my eyes will always find the white space,
unspoiled no matter what happens,
and my attention will always find its heart
with you,
the foundation my story grows upon —
a home in a hostile world,
no longer quite as lonesome.
