taming the wilderness

rudderless i wandered
in a wild overgrown wood
stumbling over aggregates
of loneliness and longing
and the entrenched roots
of trees leaved in despair
skin snagged raw on thorns
of heartache’s thickets
drenched in salty rains
of lovers’ tears
never dreaming
from the opposite direction
you approached
and we would meet
all unexpected
in the forest of the night

when we did
both wary
weary
burdened with our shrouded
coffined hearts
it was no easy task
to disinter them
so long buried
under distrust’s permafrost
how long we stood there
face to face
eyes searching each the other
i know not
at last looking away to find
the night slain by the dawning
of hope’s sun

oh yes
clouds sometimes paint the sky
a dark horizon
some nights the candle
wavers in the wind
but now
the only space between us
is a heartbeat
salt rain become
sweet showers of nurturance
that fall not upon wilderness
but on this garden
hands together
we have planted
fragile yet but growing
in the fertile loam of love
