Tethered – A Poem by Jordan Corley

The Happy Lovers – Gustave Courbet

Poetry by Jordan Corley

there are moments when
i feel your presence
so deeply in my bones
i am convinced you are here
sitting right next to me.
i am convinced
there is a tether linking
the two of us together
pulling as we drift apart
releasing as we come together
making sure we never stray
too far from where we started.
