Always - Poem by Elizabeth Bolden

Fantasy flight, a dream of before
Soaring high above an exodus from lifelessness
Out of nowhere an angel takes form: it is
mercy
Closing the hole in my heart that has suffocated me.

It is amazing to me you knew my pain as your own
The stars shining in your eyes reveal: it is understanding
No thoughts ever disapproving my soul.

We flow free, no one knows our secret
No chains to bind our meaning
The root implants itself in others, not in us
We take to a breeze and never let go
Tight to eachother love interwines our hearts.

We live on, generations passed to us
The torch lights our path
never ceasing
We are reborn in eachother's eyes, as
our gaze surpasses any distance.

This is as it will be
Always.
