I Remember (poem) 💙

By being with you,
I forget fear,
Forget about the black oceans
that chase after my breath and jubilant emotions,
About the black hole that demands my soul,
The inner critic that only spews bitter winter,
Storm clouds that stalk me like blood hounds,
Thorn bushes that beg for me to worship them,
adorn my heart with them.
Tidal waves whose shadows darken my days.

By being with you,
I remember the innermost me,
The sunbeam me,
The celestial succubus me,
The self that is a living heaven despite Hell’s persistent spell.

I remember that I’m not those dying embers;
I’m the blue hue in a growing fire.

I now know that we don’t fall in love, we soar.
The only direction you take me is
higher and higher.
In rediscovering my inner peace
through you,
I forgot my 28-year inner war.
