even though i don't know much

i may not know much about love
- of Romeo and Juliet,
Apollo and Daphne, or
Samson and Delilah -

but I do know exactly

- especially when the sun rises or sets, and
we (distantly) cannot kiss –

that this weight on my chest
is you,
and that burden in your heart
is me.
