“Au milieu de l’hiver, j’ai découvert en moi un invincible été.”

(“In the depths of winter, I discovered there was in me an invincible summer”)

-Albert Camus

You moved in me

at first as one cell in my heart that vibrated

to a distant tuning fork an infinity away

then as my heart whole gave way as a symphony


as waves upon the waiting shore,

you sang within me

We inhaled the secret language of angels

and leapt from the edge of the world

into the spinning darkness

clutching tightly to each other

knowing we were the wings that

would never land

We embraced with human arms made of light

and became the torch

that set fire to the stars

and gave greatness to the skies


you and I,

we always both knew

we were never a random
