“I had been a thousand faces”

– ♥ –

“I had been a thousand faces.
Maybe more.
Until ,
I met you.
I had broken every glass.
Every plate had fallen.
None left spinning,
In the madness ,
Of finding you.
Back.
Back to the meager beginning.
To the woods and the pines.
To the moaning’s at midnight,
Of strange animals.
Animals that were hidden to me in the day.
I had searched for them ,
And their noises.
Back to the bees buzzing around two shabby wooden boxes,
That I did not understand .
That I knew to respect.
Somehow.
Someway.
I walked in my footsteps backwards.
So far back that I could feel the water in her belly,
Swell up around me.
And what I found,
Was not a beginning.
Not a beginning of anything.
Just a rebirth.
A constant knowing.
A constant presence.
That I had been .
A million times.
In a million different places.
And all that mattered,
Was how much ,
I had loved.”
