the light that is.

I know we're not there yet. I know that there is still darkness ahead. That there are barriers. And obstacles. And people who will try and stop us.

But I also know that there is a path through all of that. That the island of dreams looms just beyond the invisible distance. And that right now, somewhere, the sun is rising.

the dream

some days
you just want to
float along the swirling waters
drift away on a wisp of silvery cumulonimbus

only to return

with fragments of stardust in your tangled hair
and the fading sunhaze lost too far behind your eyes

she came back looking for her chalked-on pavement fairytales,
merry-go-round horses and

but this time the story ended before she had time to jump.

only the rain came down.
melting sunshines and rainbows into the grey cement floors that cracked beneath her feet.

the freedom

I'm afraid of the loneliness
if you leave.

But the truth is, I'll be lonelier if you stay.

the long way home

There's a lot that stands between us now.
Years and time
Distance and space
God and science


And even though we no longer look the same
I still have your hands

And maybe that will count
One day
When we both need to reach out and hold onto something real.
