Denouement


There is just so much water
we can hold in our hands
like knowledge it slips through
the space between our fingers

There is just so much air
we can hold in our lungs
like language it falls through
the space between our lips

There is just so much earth
we can hold in our palms
like life it falls through
the space between our hands

There is just so much fire
we can hold in our hearts
like love it slips through
the space between our passions

There is a limit of time
to which we all must abide
but the space between is where
chaos finally sighs and comes to rest
