I Have Lasted

I have lasted

although still I linger, fear and sigh

though not each part

of me wrote or rode across the sky

because you paint intricate worlds

worlds which emerge me from the black and white

Against strong gales, where soft lit stars see these tears pale

you take your post against each night

You’ve kept my fragile self from keeling;

left no feeling alone in meaning

You speak so fervently of each layered moment

—however translucently or tragically they’ve impacted

And so I have lasted…

I will breathe within the timelessness you weave…
