Loves Grip

After a month of traveling through a wormhole, and coming out the other side whole…. this is my first coming home post.

Thank you, Sue for a perfectly timed prompt. Sue Vincent’s #write photo prompt

Loves Grip

A sign post…

….maybe

a choice to make….

….I will follow

with sweat and ache

I walked….

…..lifetimes…

maybe…

Alas, a crossroad

with you standing there,

on the right path

your fiery essence

yet sweet perfume

filled my senses…

you caught my eye

with a searing soulful stare

as moments went by

The letting out came

a deep causal cry

with sound that pierced

straight through my heart

You went in

and wrapped around

a divine flame

with golden bows

in soft cascades

of silky threads

But I couldn’t catch my breath

I fought you tooth and nail

night after night….

……frozen

screaming into a vast dark abyss

No one answered

not one to hear my screams

screams with tracks and

tendrils dragging me down

I tried to run from you,

my body and brain shredded,

cowering at every turn,

refuting your existence,

I hated you,

scratched at your face

begged you to let me go

…..let me breath….

please let me breath….

I cannot breath…..

….I am suffocating…. can’t you see that I am dying!

But you would not let go

not even for an instance

not a second

not a breath

no…..

you held on

as I continued to wrestle with you

You never let go,

ever,

not once,

Your love constant,

not one moment empty,

Your breath in mine

I surrender…..
