I am Yours

You should know
You have captured my heart
Every cell, every chamber
Every ventricle:
Filled with you.
(I believe again in love,
It’s promise, it’s hope
It’s childlike innocence)
Here then is my heart,
Scarred but intact
With your name etched
Forever in the memory
Fabric of my soul
I love you now
And forevermore
Until this heart
No longer beats:

The One

I know not what to do
This insepid fear
Hopelessness clinging
Onto me
I could surrender and let
It devour what is left,
A slow process love lost
Arrogance the theft
Here then I stand
Before you
Naked to your soul
Are you the one I thought
You are
Dreamed you are
(please be that for me
a safe place from this storm
If not – resentment will flourish
A beautiful love left in scorn)

If I witness you
In the spaces of what is here
Silently treading fear
Silently drawing near
If I forgive you
In the crevices of what is past
Silently treading fear
Silently drawing near
If I remind you
In the moments of what is now
Silently treading fear
Silently drawing near
If I love you
In the seconds of what is time
And stands still here:
Silently treading fear
Forever drawing near.

How often do things end in life and you wish for just one more conversation, one chance to say what you needed to say, ask what has been burning in your heart, and hear the other side of what it was really like, who you really were? Hiraeth and Phoenix choose to give each other that gift and what follows is a dialogue that cuts to the core of the reality they created and called their own.

All characters in this novel are entirely imaginary and any resemblance to persons living or dead or actual events is purely coincidental.
