I am here

she is amazing
in this light
in this scent
of the air that breezes through
every pore of my skin
caressing whimsically
as if to pull and tug me away
and she leans over me
breathlessly screaming
silently in my ear
I am here
I am here

and the barren corpse that I had become
shudders down to the core
where hope fell asleep
and love dripped through
the iron slots of street gutters
permeating to deadened moss
that gave up on light

this voice
this whisper
breaks open
wounds scarred over
breathing in life
resuscitating death
as if there is just one more dance

she is amazing
in this moment
in this dream
where beds are daisies
funneling through mountains
and breaching out across the field
as if to lead me through
and she leans over to me
forcefully whispering
silently in my ear
I am here
I am here

and I awake
with the morning light
painting my face
and the wind
seeping up through
the crack in the window
