In his emotion, washed away the
lies that held him to this world.
In his fury, grew the love he kept
for her. For this love grew under
the tree he wished to take her to,
in the field he watched for hours
on a Sunday afternoon.
In his blindness came his truth,
and in this truth gave birth to his
clarity. When all ran amok in his
twisted head, when all the
little gremlins came and went,
leaving only but a trace of sanity
behind, only then did he truly
understand what it meant to be chained
to an unstoppable force, headed towards
an immovable object.
Only then did he realize how much
she was better than he could ever
imagine. For she said no words to him,
nor has he said words to her.
Only then did he realize that her
smile was a bomb, and he was the
decimated field. She was fire, and
he was burnt.
She was a galaxy and he was a rock,
floating in the distance, in the vast distance.
His thoughts were unfathomable stars,
built upon immense constellations hidden
within the larger scheme of things.
He felt that no amount of terror or fear
could rip him back into reality, and that
no amount of help could sober him up
from the truth.
He danced with her, and she danced
with his demons. She enveloped his
thoughts, and he could not disagree
with it. She was this thing that he couldn’t
understand. Whether she liked it or not,
she was art. And he would go to sleep
believing that he could one day understand art.
