a conversation

and then

she was gone

my senses alive

with what is left with me

difficult to not always want more

empty space holds desire

I find your heart

water in the desert

I hold your hand

I pull it close

we walk together

down a road

without direction

making our own map

as we go

you’ve lifted my heart

my hand rests upon your hip

almost inside your skin

I cannot see the path

my feet keep pulling me ahead

I move forward because

I believe in us

it may be unknown

but we can make it

what we want it to be

I know this in my heart

your hand in mine

what lies ahead

is shielded

by the beams

of beauty

that is here today

and the beauty of what is

now

in these moments

is all that matters

the future will unfold as it will
