Far Away, So Near

I am a creature just like you
Constrained by the normal laws of physics, if not fiction
I don’t fly like Superman, nor am I at all the quotidian creature of the denial of possibilities

I refuse the separation of oceans of fire or water
A diurnal creature, at times, making soul visits to disturb your pellucid thoughts of flowing currents
I am, likewise, nocturnal and visit to make both your body and mind vibrate with intimations of my presence
Thus, neither do I respect the boundaries of time
I simply refuse to obey any but one imperative: my own

It is by this mandate that I seek out your flame
I do so not in order to tamp down its formidable long-distance power to fire me up
But to add to its fuel, to ensure that its power continue to disturb me, to disrupt the rhythms of my body, heart, and mind

I come to deliver the promise of what may be, in spite of what has been & what is
Obeying the directions of this material world, the walls of which I may not pass through
I nevertheless conquer the time zones, oceanic separations, and walls of rock in order to inhabit the reflection of your soul in the mirrors of your eyes
I do so, because I want you to see yourself as I do

Although I will not likely share that reflection with you in any ontologically full fashion
Until the alignment of the planets in the name of YOU & I
That day will come and with it, an epoch
