almost love

You saw my higher self, bumbling through the darkness in a cowboy hat
I saw yours
Filling up water bottles in a bathroom stall while I waited beside the forest, hiding from the light that catches your eyes
Eyes catching me
That light loves the nighttime and I recognized your face
The face of someone who loves me, and has loved me since the beginning of time
And so now
I lie in that same darkness, heart beating alongside yours
to the pulse of artificial sunshine that beats it's way through the door
open a crack because we are both afraid

Only it's leaving slowly
and I have never known this same peace

You and I will make something beautiful together
Two broken spirits, resurrected
