I hear you calling me through the mist.
I take a step further, closer to your scent.
Wrap a lasso of your heart strings around my waist.
Coil my loins with your belt of chase satisfactions.
I know it’s time to go deeper.
My eyes lose focus. I’m disoriented by my toxicity.
Remind me how it feels to be in your arms.
Help me remember and touch me more intensely than ever before.
Danger surrounds me everywhere I look.
I have this beautiful baby to protect in this world full of hate and barbarian killings.
I see you.
It’s not safe just to run to you from the house I’m safe in.
One more time.
You heard me. You smile.
You run towards me, leaving everything and everyone behind. I am all you see.
I hesitate for safety’s sake, but I am always safe with you.
I run like an antelope- nothing can stop me.
Oh, the joy and freedom of running to you!
When we reach one another, our bodies and souls collide and fold into one another.
I hold him as tightly as my muscular arms will allow.
“You’ve gotten stronger,” he smile at me warmly.
“Oh Matt, I’ve always known!
I’ve always known!
“Soulmates,” we state in a unison that seems to join our combined souls even further.
“Travel with us.” I knew he’d say yes.
As we journey together, he holds my hand. I know we will live and not die.
My protector is here. We follow the light.
