The reflective pieces of the universe
were as apparent to you
as they were to me
The leaves around us could’ve been
Snowflakes or embers
But it didn’t matter because
If the universe would’ve dissolved that day
All it would mean was
Going back to where we came from
(going home)

The shards of mirror that
Tiled to build your skin and bones
Built you like a butterfly
So if I’m lead or ash
You’re the only light thing left
Sitting on my chest

On the ride home
The first time you asked me
To see with you
I was sure my destination
Was to the hospital
(To the end, to relief)
But last night you sailed me to safety
Under warmth and light and peace of mind
Even while the fabric of your own being
Swayed and blew
And threatened to tear.
