dissociate (freeverse)

holding hands
you place mine close to your heart
keeping it there 
you caress 
squeezing harder as you hold 
massaging the fingers

first time you've done this
i look at you, shocked 
words flow through 
trying to attach a meaning  
to feel more
to be more 

you look at me with glowing eyes,
filled with emotion, 
i am here, too busy, 
trying to put value into this
struggling and working 
to get a deeper meaning

you feel a whole world 
open in front of you
merging you in serenity 
getting the meaning immediately 
while im here
feeling nothing 
but a hand
