in life with have exhilarating moments
where passion speaks beyond our real.
One fantasy whispers an essence
of desire, of need, of compassion.
Yet all is lost
and home seems unfamiliar
while knowing how truth can weigh.
I walked outside to the damp ground
imagined my tears
in a parallel universe
what will be our time
the passage of lives in love
We might honor the respite
of knowing we did, rather than reject.
