i can feel

         the earth



                                   the stony steps

                                                 and trickling

                                                              waterfalls –

                                                                        a poignant reminder

                                                                        of what is really ours.


Your words feel

like sinking into a pillow

of clouds

at the end of a long day

like rising out of an abyss

into normality

like everything I have ever done 

has led me

to this moment,

to this burning, aching desire.
