Without You

Because me without you,
Is wrong and incomplete.

You see,
Our story begins
At the meeting place between
Worlds.
Between the stars and the horizon.
Where the oceans meet the
Shorelines.
Where the universe starts its
Grim fairytale and where my
Dark heart finishes it.

I saw you across the cerulean waves,
Under the light of the waxing moon,
And you offered me a new life;
An eternal one.
A life without the sting of rejection
And the fatal arrow of heartbreak,
Cleaving my soul in two.

You came to me like a dream.
In hushed whispers and
Seamless shadows,
Perfumed in sea breeze,
Wrapped in a chilled fog;
And I knew you.

I knew you as I had known
You,
In the forever lifetimes.
And I laid down my sins
To pray at your feet,
Like a midnight mass
On the deserted beach.

I spoke to you
In a language that only
You would understand.
Because
You
Knew
Me.

And when you touched me,
My mind was set on fire.
I could the see the ocean floor
And all of the days,
That had come before and
Those that would come after.

You changed me.
You took my woeful essence
And shaped it in your hands.
You brought me out of my
Darkness; shared your light
With me.
And I loved you.

I loved you as HE loved
Persephone.
Like the fish love the sea.
You are the beginning of all of my
Poems.
You are the ending of me.

And I can’t be without you.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
