Unsent #1

It was a slow

love

A yearning that grew

through the years

 

A slow falling

of emotions

An entanglement of

vines

of roots

of soft splittered

glass debris

washed up to the shore

and polished

to be as one

as the sea

 

It was the slow

and steady

breathing of the universe

 

It was the silence

and unexpected reunion

and falling,

all over again –

 

It was

you

and

me

in a

cliche

 

It was

you

and

me

fighting

making up

fighting

questioning

not sleeping

talking

holding hands

breathing

 

It was you

holding back

not trusting

it was me

doing the same

 

Rinse repeat

 

It was me

letting go

It was you agreeing

 

It was us

missing each other

 

It was me

and a current decision.

Oh/

Oh/

This is the start of my life, she thought

this is the love I’ve been waiting for

Oh/

He arrived quietly, unexpectedly

She held back, he pulled her in

She built walls, he tore them down

She was full of impossibilities

He promised possibilities

And promised, promised more

Until she believed.

Oh/

She truly believed.

Each love that came.

But every time they came

they also left

And oh/

They left with another piece

and another.

Until there was nothing

But light traces of dusty wreckage

echoes of past promises

circling inside of her

I have dreamed of you in this life time

The way you speak

The slight of your head when you ask

The slow creep of your hand towards my spine

The way you breathe, as it turns into my lullaby

I have kept in my dreams, and more –

Of your strength

Of your hands encompassing mine

Of my safety, in your arms

Of us, defying the waves of time –

I have dreamed of you in this life time, and the next.
