Near Enough

{Edited}

 

On the mortal side of love
Somewhere unknown
Lies a place
Close to my heart


 

Where I sense your essence
In the indigo clouds
As daydreams drift along
And time


Has no perceptible consequence


Elusive…


As I have become


You juggle the urgent need
To let me go
With a heartfelt desire to
Repossess for me
The hopes and dreams
That gave me substance



Balanced against the mystery
Of what killed me
Is a compelling urgency
To keep me whole
And growing
Into righteous womanhood


 


Ours not forever


Or exclusively perhaps
but surely…

Near enough


{ thanks Jeff }

“Near Enough “

{first edition}


On the mortal side my love
Of somewhere unknown
There is a place
That is near enough
Where I sense you
In the indigo of the clouds
As daydreams slip sideways
And time has
No perceptible consequence
Elusive
As I have become
You juggle the urgent need
To let me go
With a heartfelt desire to
Repossess for me
The hopes and dreams
That gave me substance
Balanced against the mystery
Of what killed me
Is a compelling urgency
To keep me whole
And growing
Into righteous womanhood
Ours not forever
Or exclusively
Perhaps but surely
Near enough
