My heart started beating again
the day you touched it so warmly
silent and knowing like the moon
watching us fools try to capture Destiny.
The darkness that once bruised my entire skin
now just reaches for the light.
I saw when you looked at me
I don’t understand
how such few words
could hold our hearts
so close, on a palm of colors we can’t
see. Vibrating to sounds we can’t hear.
Singing as our future gently unfolds
like an unfurling leaf reaching for rain
or a sail opening itself to the wind
