Where the darkness

kisses the light

and the light begs for forgiveness,

where the split in time

allows the shade

of this shadow

to sleep within his arms.

Where once I lost sight

of the beauty of wildness

and our unharnessed rapture.

Where I dreamt we were children

and the wink of your eye

became a door to our lives.

Where I lost you

and you would not return

when I asked you why

you whispered to me,

“the void is where we find one another.”

When the emptiness echoed

with illuminated sight

I saw fragments of myself.

I became a witness

to the rising of our lust.

you remember now____don’t you?
