Waking

Written by: melissa mesch

I awoke inside a place;
a place that has carried me,
a fortress of delicacy,
where my angels live,
and my limitations die.

I awoke today
in a secret place;
a place where he lives,
where he resides.
His eyes are a bluer mine,
and a timeless kind.

I awoke today in a familiar place,
a place my soul exists.

Until I awoke, he could not 
acknowledge my presence.
Then I said to him, 
"What are you to me?"
He said, 
"I am your body."
