The space between yes and no

In the space between yes and no I am one hundred people. My mind wanders as far as the horizon but sprints back to the blank page staring at me. Your footsteps sound like mispronunciations of my name, and my fingers shuffle through every alternate meaning that I am… In the space between yes and no; I am you, and I am me, and I am fifty pairs of eyes, and I am an empty seat- the one next to you. In the space between yes and no I am a heartbeat-
On the verge of giving up
But beating still.
For you.
