15 of 30

Though I am well past the deadline...still, I keep...going...




Familial

This forever type love that moves through me
From me
To and through you
Beyond us
Somewhere
Up high
On high
Higher than high
Borne of blood
Bone
Tears
Struggle
We gave birth to it
With whispers and screams
Soul to soul
From spirit
From synapses to testes, tongue to womb
Woven on the loom of our ancestors
Brought to fruition in the valley of perdition
But with hope of a new day
Beyond scorched earth
Bittersweet fruit, plump with the juice of perpetuum
Seeded in Elysium
This love
From them to us and back again
We swam through time
Time and time again
Against time
Attempting to take back what was taken
This forever type love
Unshaken
Unshakable
Unbroken
Enduring
From me
To and through you
Beyond us
In our daughter's eyes
And she sees the forever type love
In you
And me
