Last night, it felt like you and I had come apart, like
Nothing was forever and hope had tiptoed
From our hearts
And hidden itself
But tonight, our lips brought us back together
We breathed every:
I’m sorry,
I’ll be better
into one another without saying a word
And when we stood out on my balcony
looking skyward
It was as though
of those bright stars was gifting us each other.
It felt a lot like the promise of disappearing
Heartbreak, of fresh
Beginnings, of
Lovers being knitted back together by the universe.
It felt a lot like coming home.
