Coincidence

This evening
A beautiful
Grey & orange
Dusk

I search for us
In my mind’s eye
Impact
Options
Chances

What are the odds
The evens
Even when

There’s nothing
Left to hold onto
In my mind
I let go of 
Your hand

The fading
Only begins
Months
Later

Stifled breath
What’s causing it

Stifled life
The pression
Around
Losses
From
Inevitabilities
Unrecognized
Realities

Flipped between
Telling & not telling
The stories

Underneath
The safety
Unsafety
Flipside of rest
Herein
Exhaustion
Takes over

Nevertheless

No rest for those
Deemed wicked
We embrace
Our witchiness

& that is how we began
Spells have repetition
Clouds loopdaloop
Above us

Messages of you
Draw themselves
Across the blue

Our love was the sky
The paths through snow
The gentle guiding
Moments of life
Where all is just known

& when the fronds arrive
& the little leaves unravel themselves
I will remember the telepathy of us
The amazing coincidence of us
