One Breath

We cannot carry
Darkness and bitterness
In our hearts and be
Completely happy
Backing down
Resting our misunderstandings
On the ground
We bury the shame and guilt
Open the parkways to
Great roads of silk
I promise you no expectations
I promise you many elations
Between the both of us
All our baggage
Can be left at the roadside
Contoured warmth
Of being with you
Even as the sky
Could be our afghan
And the grass
Our hammocked bed
Promises held in seasons
Yet to be uncovered
Another reason
To love more deeply
And succinctly
As true lovers
Sunrise sunset
Sunrise sunset
Capable beauty
Enveloped and yoked
As one shared breath
