It started with breathing,
then opening of colours,
the energy moving us both.
We stared at our bridges,
then over we crossed,
into each others’ bared souls.
I heard the words,
‘you are stronger than fear’,
and then I watched you grow old.
You saw a white light
surrounding my head,
my shoulders, my breast, my torso.
The tears started flowing,
we shared an embrace
as each our journeys we told.
Now, my hands, cold, and clammy
as I walk to the sea,
the water bringing me home.

I’ve never seen that before.
I’ve never seen you before.
I’ve never felt such calm resolution in someone before.
Yet the fear.
Your eyes were closed. You were waiting for the moment.
They were so focused.
They spoke to you softly.
He threaded his arms through yours, held your chest.
Drew you back.
When I am in nature I feel God.
I feel everything and nothing, all at once.
My purpose is clear;
you are my Alpha and my Omega.
You are my fulfilment and my whole,
everything I am, and can be, is made possible because of you,
This living, breathing, organism that heaves and sighs,
is turbulent and calm.
You feed me. You are me. You are God.
