Poem: Veronica

I would give up everything

for

a Love that would illuminate the

dark sub-chambers of my heart, unexplored

with a flaming torch in an ancient

tomb, I discovered

me with

you.

 

You

are a single match, tossed carelessly

upon the dying embers of my dormant

soul, awakening me, now I

am alive, I

am an inextinguishable forest

fire of passion, my flames

licking at

the heavens

for a taste of

you

again.

 

You

are the gravity, holding me to

this world, while my fantastic flights of

fiction tempt me to escape the

reality of your absence, of

the places we consecrated with

our sacred

Love now

haunted by the

ghost

of

your fingertips

across my

skin.

 

You

are the angel in my dreams, feeding

my heart the beauty it needs to

face my own monsters, the person in

the mirror, I saw

myself in your

eyes, I saw

you

in the

higher skies

and

 

when you

walked

out of my

life

I knew

 

that fighting for you didn’t

mean locking you in and begging at

your feet, it meant

 

falling

to my

knees

and watching

you

 

leave.

 

Because

I saw magnificent

wings

fixed upon

your shoulder

blades,

and I wanted to

see you fly in that

sky, much more

than I

wanted

you

to be

mine.

 

Now you are

gone,

and I

 

can never be the same, you have

changed me, like a

newborn baby

Christian, my faith has

been renewed, I

 

have the

strength of

ten men

or more

 

in the

core of my

soul

 

in the

beat

of my

heart.

 

I

beheld your inner

Truth

for only two

seconds

and I

was

 

transformed.
