A large lemniscate
We were standing on ends opposite

Each day one or two
Would move a step closer
Till finally the distance was covered

Inching further and further
Till we couldn’t anymore
Time stopped
We remained in place, together

One took a small step back
The other took a small tentative step forward
Time stopped again

Then further steps back
Further steps forward
Till it became a chase

He ran
I ran after him
He stopped running
I caught up
We stayed there for a while

He backed away further
I tried reaching out
He ran forwards, past me
And this time I couldn’t catch up

Maybe our paths will intersect once I start moving forward again
And maybe we could stay there again
But the next time never to leave
Together forever in our infinity
