you again,
              bright there
in the blackness,
wondering, nearing,
                           the opening
as time closes in
                         on us,
you suddenly limitless
                              as we approach
the limits,
               you suddenly timeless
as time overtakes us,
                         you the breathing space
in airless inner space,
                           the sudden freshness
in my stale silence.
                            come what may
we come together,
in the common cause
                       of love,
blessing us
               so that we undo
the curse of time,
                          outlasting it.
