on underwater, love, and dust

Never forget, love
  
what joy and peace it is to be alone
your peace ó †
destroyer of a thousand monsters †
that joy what lifted boulders out your lungs
Itís how you entered this place †  
of gossips and turning yellow leaves †
six-foot deep holes †  
laced with Christmas and toddler words †
Itís how youíll leave †
having loved a thousand times †
having considered most how much you never knew †
†  
Revel in that close-your-eyes †
water's-weight-on-eardrum solitude †
Stretch ó drink your power warm †  
in the wild, cosy den you keep †
Embrace that you are here †  
by infinite coincidence †  
of molecules and monkeysí revolutions round the sun †  
perfect posing distance, perfect running pace †
Know you will be swept away †  
as fast as you appeared †
And there will be no meaning here †  
†  
unless you want it
