Holding on

What do you see #22



Heaven’s harbour
beyond the evil of this world
undimmed and undulled
refuge to beauty undying
I search for you my love
beyond the reach of pain and loss
mapping your pathway through splendid stars
I search for you my love
on distant planets far beyond Mars
longing to ease my heart’s demands
I brave the brush and brack of sinister lands
to find you where you said you’d always be
longing to ease my heart’s demands
A glint, a wink, is all I seek to see
trailing ellipses of the story of ‘we’
,
Flashing the heavens
moarse-coding my love to you
awaiting your sign

    It does seem like there are entire universes separating us from those we love right now. (K)

        They definitely give you strength and remind us that we are a miniscule entity in this vast universe. 🖤

      1. Romance is often sad, isn’t it? It either becomes sad or boring [giggle]
