Turning

It took all of my courage
to move mountains
and separate us.
But you still lingered there,
waiting for me to weaken,
and let you turn
my world against me.

Axis

My world spun on its axis,
tumbling me around,
but when your eyes met mine,
everything went blissfully still.

Sailing

Sailing atop the clouds this night,
I reach up with the universe gliding
between my fingertips,
painting the sky
with swirling starshine.

Darkness And Light

Underneath all the darkness,
I couldn’t drag you down with me.
So I left, burying myself deeper.
At the first glimmers of light,
I saw you like it was the first time.
And I was the lucky one
when you took me back.
