A Life of Mending

In the beginning, we knew each other whole.

That intimacy was the most natural state

Of being, but a flaw in the fabric of

Things pulled us apart, created that

First break, set us in motion.

 

But we are born to fight entropy. We are

Heavenly bodies finding each other in

The dark, acting on each other in

Ways we’ll never understand.

 

We can fix this. We can laugh in the

Face of decay. A strong force

Attracts us. Gravity will

Pull us back together.

 

You will see, I promise you. You

Will see that the very act of

Living is to be mending,

 

That it is in the nature of

Our bodies to come

together, that

 

What has been broken will

Be made whole, and that

 

My universe will never be empty so long as you are in it.
