In A Parallel Life


I recognise
the unspoken question
in your eyes, yes is
the only word needed
to bridge the gulf

We meld soundlessly
as the afternoon melts
into the growing shadow
of the evening

l emerge into the night
on the other side
of my erstwhile world
and there is no way back
with all my bridges
burning behind me

But no regrets rise
with the smoke
for I am willing
to walk through
the flames to you, again
