Merging

Updated: Aug 6, 2022

The vision lingers.

Soft light holds me.

I am afraid to forget

you.


I don't want release

from this merging

of soft wishes

and soft dreams.


Such generous precision,

making my life so precious,

to think we were meant from the start-

Did you become my thoughts,

or were you inside before I knew

to want you?


Such love,

to be one

in this soft space.


I don't want to return

to my empty peace,

before the blending

of you and me.

I feel us together

in the In-Between,

when I open my eyes.

We're close.

Promise you'll know me,

as I now release your memory.

Even new, I will recognise

soft love in sturdy form.

I won't run.

And I won't hold too tight.

I let the shells fall:

You,

and unfeeling-me

who can adore someone in this way.

This much.


Love is stronger

than I expected or knew.

So I ask nothing more of you.

I'm forgetting you already,

I'm forgetting your sparkling beauty,

all the details of your soul,

and how you reflect me.

I will only keep

this merging.


Our dawn is young but familiar:

Fulfilling. Stable. Deep as forever.

I will walk

in this intertwining of us.

The little ball of spiky fluff, stem arched, looks up to receive the evening's easing light, as the stars blink awake, comfortable in its subtropical dome. The relaxed trees, the birds, the dogs- this
