IV. Timeless

Our time to truly be had come
I now understand
all that has happened
what is to be
and I presume
so does he

We open our eyes with the sunrise
and we love for as long
as the sun roams the sky
When it sleeps
torches and lit wicks
help keep us stay awake a little longer

It’s hard to imagine
at one point I craved the sweet caress of death
although something like that
is never easy to accept
I had not a care left
I didn’t need love
I didn’t need life
and I didn’t need anyone
to convince me that I was mistaken
Or so I thought
because now I see
that was exactly what I needed

I know at some point
our time together
will come to an end
as all good things do
and I will have to face a fate
similar to the one that I had previously escaped
but with a new faith

I feel secure
I felt like time and energy
were leaking through pieces of me
Escaping to a reality
that I could never see myself in
But no more
I’ve gathered myself
I’ve been collected
I’m sure

He knows me
How he feels for me
reflects in the inflections
of his voice
when he talks with me
when he calls for me
when he bears his all for me
None could be as darling
as my beloved Aion

He knows me
solely eo nomine
A gift to myself
when my love for life
and living things
was at its peak
I would only ever speak
with exuberance
and delight
Little and not so insignificant things
Like how the rings on a tree stump
makes hints at unique identities
much like human finger prints
The butterfly finding freedom
Liberated from restrictions of its past
I found it fascinating
Nothing could ignite my excitement
more than life
I still love to see things grow
I would acknowledge myself
with monikers and nomenclatures
that only I know of
Ones that blissfully tether me forever
Names that ring true
Sincerely speaking
I do

Even though I didn’t jump that day
I began to fall
Much faster than I would have
into something much deeper
Rather than falling to a watery grave
in an unforgiving sea
I was falling to life
in the comforts and solace of love
And with him
I could fall forever
from on top of the world
to the bottom of my heart

I would willingly die a thousand deaths
if each one were the end
of a lifetime such as this
