A Life Like This

aligns with Saturn ...
the distance
between our hearts
so close, yet so far

you live your life 
as if you were Robinson Crusoe
she repeats . . .
alone when writing, my mind
fills with a thousand others

the heartbeat
of this creature inside her ...
years later
will he look like me
a struggling poet ?
