A Moment In Time. - Poem by Leah Ayliffe
For a brief moment in the absurdity of time
I thought I saw something.
The sparkle of potential and ideas of becoming a dream.
I thought I saw a look that held all the oceans and they were calm,
still and happy to gently touch all the edges of the world and discover what it is to stay and love the land, instead of rushing back and forth flirting with the shore, moved by the winds and magnetic pull of the lonely moon.
For just a moment
I thought there may have been room for something much more.
That moment felt like home.
However strange, that moment that lasted in different measurements of space and time were inexpressible visions playing across my mind.
They will stay still like the ocean I wish to be.
It defies all that I used to think, as unimportant as it may appear,
It's just the shattered glass of houses that once held miracles of what could become real.
I'm just another ocean being taken by a storm,
who gets caught up in things that shine as though they were gold, though they never end up being real.
I thought I saw you see me.
I know you see me.
It's okay that we are who we are,
that we'll be what we are.
I am still dazed in happiness
that someone reached through to the center of my universe
and didn't run from the world of chaos in my unfathomable sadness and purest fantasies.
Worlds that are much more real than anything I've ever known in reality.
This is all I see now,
I confess and forgive instantly my sentiment
Let it bleed out to make room for having you just as I've always known we were to be.
It is true I can leave this moment behind easily and still adore ideas,
because you see,
I may have thought I saw you see more
But that was only for a brief moment in the absurdity of time.
