we've hurt a thousand lifetimes already,
my hurt versus your hurt versus the entire
world cocooned from the sun that i hold in
my hands, this treasure of smell and taste
and forgiveness just out of reach, out of anger
misplaced and words i can never take back.
how to heal when there is only a void,
repercussions upon repercussions
within an emptiness i will always feel,
this divinity i will always touch and share,
this drowning vista of undreamt dreams
and unformed stolen happiness.
