you are a spark out of a dying ember, phoenix of my life. where one dies, another is born, and you are the lantern of the light in my darkness.
I am raw and unhinged, while you are dreamy and uninhibited. the colors of the iridescent webs you weave leave me breathless as I examine each gossamer strand.
you are artemis, the goddess of the hunt; protector of all creatures great and small. I, being a mere red fox, fall under your care. your empathetic abilities radiate so much love, and fluctuate to meet my moods and emotions.
you are as if nature and nurture collided together through the stars as they formed you.
you weave your celestial lights in the sky, my aurora borealis. you are an ethereal essence made of light and love ribboning in the night.
I want to bottle you up and keep your eternal light by my bedside to guide me throughout life – to finally say that I own and have a small piece of something of perfect divinity in nature; but I know this can't be the case.
you are wild and free; untamed by man. but I know somehow, just like the moon; you will return to me each night.
September 10th, 2014. a ballad of deep friendship between kindred souls.
