“Solace” – a new poem

Solace

I found myself in your arms tonight,

just as I have countless times in the past.

A picture-perfect moment for all to see,

yet it was private.

Only for us.

Despite the risks,

you couldn’t resist kissing me, and neither could I resist you.

We needed to reacquaint our physical forms.

It’s been too long since we stood body to body,

and even longer since we were caught up in each other.

It was difficult with the chaos and fear around us,

all the precautions against disease,

one that continues to hunt people.

Even now.

This night I was reminded of a few of the many things that keep us connected.

With such a revelation, it’s clear we could never be just friends.

Were circumstances different,

if we hadn’t made the decisions that we did,

or if events had not played out the same way,

we still would’ve ended up here.

Not with a pandemic looming over our heads.

Just together.

A lot separates us…

We are trapped by inconvenience,

fighting against an invisible thread.

But I know if either of us could change it in an instant,

fix the barriers…

We would.

That’s how much I want to be your wife.

The more time we spend apart,

the more I miss you and the deeper our connection becomes.

Some people do not understand why we keep trying,

why we’re still here despite the odds set against us.

But it’s not for them to comprehend.

We already know the truth at the heart of all the chaos.

That vital fact is our solace in a cruel, dark place.

Nothing can divide us,

not really.

We remain one.

Still meant to be.

Fate put me in your arms,

the way you held me just hours ago,

as if we were one another’s breath of life…

Essences that have always managed to become a rare union of minds.

Our hearts, bodies, and souls were made for these moments.

Draw me close.

Kiss me again.

Let’s forget the world for a while.

Even with forces working against us,

we need not worry…

For I will always be yours.

No matter what.
