i think we still exist somewhere in the universe behind the sun where all of earth’s abandoned soulmates go to rest i think i can see us when i look up at the sky and squint directly into the rays of light, your brown eyes burning into mine
i think we are together in the time that trails behind the present, dancing in circles until the last stars fizzle out
i think that our promises seeped into the soil, like february rain, our souls sown together, tucked in beneath the world
i think what we had is somewhere just out of reach, pulsing in the dim spaces between heat lightning
and although, in this lifetime, we became nothing but shadows, monsters that linger on bedroom walls
we are there, we are alive, and we are still in love.
