The Wounds that Bind Us
The rain reminds me of you,
of those moments we shared
between the raindrops,
between silent heartbeats
and words unspoken.
I remember the day I found you--
I could still hear that sound,
the hollow resonance in our hearts
that yearn for meaning, for sanity.
In the silence I sometimes wonder
if my passage into your life
has meant as much to you
as it has for me.
I remember the days when I longed for you--
When I looked to the sky,
casting my wishes upon the stars,
hoping one day I may find my way to you.
I still gaze into the darkness of the night
in hopes that I may find secret, stolen memories
that the fragments of these stars
might choose to whisper into my ears.
I remember the dark nights of despair--
Of my soul splintering beneath
the weight and agony
caused by the paradoxes within my reality.
It was your precious gifts of insight
that I found amidst the shores of our souls,
trapped between the stretch of agonizing silence
that helped me find my way back to myself
and to the roads that lead back to you.
