The bravest act

What of the hearts of those who were apart

Owned on separate lands miles away from their beloved

As if

These attachments have no value... they kept paired animals


How does one survive with heart break around every corner

Silently screaming prepare yourself stay aware


When my lungs fill with air I thank them for that brave act of love to create family

In the petri dish of abject debasement


Makes me hold on to love separated by time and space for it is the very roots needed for a bright future


Love is what keeps folks pushing to see the morrow rise in cotton candy splendor


Keep your eye on the prize

Love deeply and unapologetically

Inform your beloved every chance you get

Love passionately and unconditionally

Love with every cell of your being

Folks died so you could love honor their sacrifice

I love you, forever

A moment

Images flicker in scratchy reels behind closed eyes Sweeping mouths with long wet tongues Inhale/Exhale Chests heaving like a cheetah after her sprint A Queen in heat How do you remember it?
