I will stand here and call you
until the wall behind me crumbles.
I know that you will hear me,
because there is a word
that I put inside your name
every time it leaves my mouth;
a word that is nothing on it’s own
and yet so powerful that it
can break and heal
in the same instant.
It doesn’t care about syllables
or distance. It will find you
across the universe,
hidden in a city or a dream.
to deliver your name in my voice.
My cigarette smoke tells this future;
it draws your true face in the air.
Look through my eyes in the moment
that I’ve just kissed you.
There you are love, fearless and whole.
