when you stay where you are

long enough

late friday. i came home after midnight to fall in love all over again, being with you, your stone cold fixed hold upon my gaze, all the week long work fallen off your leaden shoulders, and then we were both of us no longer struggling. replaced by an embrace there on the couch the cats have torn half to hell, believing in the same god who brought us together, rediscovering the colors in our eyes, feeling the common ground of recollected pain, the loss inside our former dreams… against the bright and soft-focused clarity that has replaced them.

elevators in my dreams

wait for us

my family

i try to coax them

off the cold concrete

where we stand

my family

i know up there

in the white paint sky

there is forgiveness

my family

there is renewed love

my family

we can go there

into the white paint sky

above which

colors
