connection

you are on the road
so I will not ask
when will you be home –
for the road is your heart
and that heart
is what I love.

our love
is not to be
explained,
is not to be
consummated,
it is, simply,
an understanding.

there is a low flame
that draws us back together-
creators of worlds
sayers of truths.

you have a darkness brushed
by light.
I have a lightness
shadowed by demons.

we are two wholes.
you free on the road
me rooted with child.

our love, an understood respect.
creation is our connection.
