Loved Ones

Your voice penetrates the still night
My mind takes flight
It happens faster than time can account for

Fragments come rushing in
Singular, no
But niether whole

I am flooded by warmth
Entering through my mind’s eye
It may reside in a time long since forgotten
But no matter

Like a portal connecting me to a distant place
Opening and becoming visible to me

I recall nothing of the detail
Simply the knowledge that no harm can come to me
As long as you are here

This is what you are to me
I am imperceptibly connected
A bond, slender, pliable, but oh so stoic
Never breaking even in the face of time and experience
The one thing in my world that remains monolithic
Yet wondorously malleable

A spindly web ensnares and connects us
Sticky with love
Light and willowy
Entangling and ever present
Each of us at its centre
Love built on safety, nurture, constancy

I have searched my whole life for the way to the heart of you
And suddenly I find it, momentarily
In your voice
Like a key to a box in the attic of my mind

Eventually this world will be left behind
But I am sure that traces will remain
Traces of you, traces of me
Cellar Door

Loved Ones
