I have hardly but stood in your glow
Before the darkness falls upon me
And I begin to stare aimlessly into Nothingness.
There are but few things to comfort me
Yet as I inhale the chill of thoughts born yesterday,
You are the feint fragrance of hope that warms my soul.
Though as dark and uncomfortable as I am
I do find you the Light and you the Warmth,
That brings me back to Joy’s reality.
Who am I to hide these things
Does the Sun pretend to be the moon?
Or the Sea pretend to be the cause of its mighty tide?
The answers to all of this
Is found in the joy of your simple touch,
In the shiver that touch shoots through my Soul.
I cannot pretend to be anything but
Lost in a place devoid of all you are,
Yet found in the knowledge that you are not that.
And torn between the two.
Such an easy choice it seems
Yet nothing has been so hard as to choose
Between who I am and who I wish to be.
Into your hands I come
Never to be parted as the fault lines fade,
We are, we share, we give birth to
