he completes me

I used to come here
every time that I’d feel
the way the world kept turning
but it was as though I'd fallen off
along the way - somewhere

searching for more
but in less
a hollow silhouette without direction
mind drowning in the emptiness
aimlessly looking for nothingness
yearning for the unknown

grasping onto torched remnants
of what I once believed
questioning, should I pray… should I pray?
to myself? to god? to who?
I‘d feel nothing
nothing at all

I spent a lot of time stripping life down
myself mostly

nothing looks as ugly
as viewing your entire self from above
seeing a billion pieces scattered
each too weak
to make a whole

I was something more than
a little broken
somehow eventually grew into
something a little new
a form of acceptance
peaceful and content
but never quite complete


tonight, I’ve come back here
not to rip anything apart
or to pose more questions
somehow everything makes sense

but simply
to be alone
alone… with you

in your breath, I can see
it's been night for days
I inhale slowly
and waves of belonging come crashing over me

you’re the freedom in my enduring solitude
the way you feel my minds every curvature
carrying such quietness amongst all the noise
so strong your hold, so tender your caress

everything I didn't know existed
suddenly makes sense
and I no longer feel the same
the emptiness, its changed

east has stayed east
as has west remained west
yet, I don’t think I can feel anyone closer
to me now
than I do you

and I’ve realised…
there’s nothing softer
than being whole
in more than intimacy

but also
that nothing aches more
than being homesick

I guess sometimes
we have to take the long road
just to find
