4 Years

A little girl who dreamed of fairy tale endings,

never ending stories with heroes who defeat the villains,

I thought you would storm the castle on mounted steed

Delivering true love’s kiss in time to save me.

 

The years bled by and darkness fell

clouding the dreams,

fading to nightmares,

innocence seceding to gray reality.

 

I never learned what true love looked like,

I’d never seen an unconditional bond.

I was told a man would clip my wings,

if I had dreams to guard them jealously.

 

I stopped searching, believing,

that two souls could meet and know

they found the piece of themselves they’d been missing

and their fragmented hearts were finally whole.

 

Singing at a frequency no one else could hear

I wandered through living a colorless life

my voice disappearing in the tempo of years

I almost stopped singing until your whispered reply.

 

I knew when I looked in your eyes,

our songs harmonized,

our bodies magnetized,

I’d met him who could make two one.

 

I never expected the depth of this feeling,

limitless willingness,

terrifying and freeing,

together we’re better than we’d ever be alone.

 

A man of honor in an honor less world,

you proved the grey reality’s boundaries exist.

You make me brave.

Best of all you let me forgive myself.

We Are Infinite

I see eternity within your eyes
When you stare back into mine
Through my soul to the end of time
To where the gods are said to shine
When prayers are offered to their shrines
And you and I don’t need to find
Absolution, we have discovered in kind
Our salvation through each other’s minds
Delicate balances as we attempt to align
distance and affection, marriage defined
Anew for this moment of mankind’s design
Our commitments to country but disinclined
To prioritize wars of rich men’s asinine
Beliefs (see: portfolios) but beyond serpentine
Leaders we gather our courage and combined
We are unstoppable, indivisible, winding vines
On the scale of an infidimensional timeline.
I love you.
