Coffee & Pancakes


We reached that Dead End  
the one that pointed and said:  
You, Right  
and. . .  
You, Left.  
Scared Us senseless  
but we bagged ego  
submitted despite what we wanted  
Because Love  
isn't always grasping for happiness  
On the contrary;  
it's often a self-sacrifice  
for the one you love's benefit  
Those who've truly Loved  
understand this  
A timing belt of dynamics  
churns for our experience  
Infinite are intersecting circles  
conjoining destinies;  
figure eights crossing dimensions  
until a collision shatters  
two galactic entities  
From this disruption  
comes a new planet: Life  
in turn begetting its own  
Freedom to come  
Freedom to go  
but never alone:  
The Universe  
never leaves us  
holds us in poetry  
art, musical lyrics  
if we but pay attention  
Even some random meme  
you've never seen  
before that moment:  
One day you'll wake up at 11:30  
AM on a Sunday with the Love of  
your life and you'll make some coffee
& pancakes and it'll all be alright  
You pause in time-continuum  
stunned into the memory  
of your own words  
For those who are alone  
with unanswered dreams  
praying for relief day after day  
It'll all be alright  
Contrast can only  
be birthed from the darkest  
hour we think we've ever faced  
( until the next presents itself )  
How blessed a reward  
for obedience  
than temporary separation  
Because Life  
is an ever-forward movement  
acquiring knowledge  
How stagnant fate would've turned  
had we been afraid to let go  
walk our individual direction;  
polluted regret contaminating Us  
until nothing but debris ourselves  
Together in this warm kitchen  
making coffee & pancakes  
Sunday morning  
the Anniversary of the day  
we first spoke  
Willing to let go in Trust  
kept together by Love  
this tiny part of our planet  
so peaceful and perfect  
not by riches or materialism  
but simply Us  
For My J on our First Anniversary  
and always
