I have thoughts sometimes
Fantasies and hints prodding at me
Of a time before my birth.
Visuals remind me of a safe haven.
A touch of a hand sends shivers
that make my soul thump,
make me think of the future,
and how hard I fight to have one.
I’m not sure such phenomena exist
outside of this life experience.
I imagine warmth in the beginning
The separation of a great land mass.
Our separation grows in new ways today.
Then- there was Just warmth,
Cast out in front of our eyes-
Tickling our skin-
A lure out of the frantic waters beneath.
Once you see the lure in the shadows of the water
A fixation begins-
There is nothing quite as beautiful.
The Lure is You.
You seem so real
that I feel crazy.
Sometimes, I hear a call,
I feel a shiver
Reminding me of an Elsewhere.
Is Elsewhere where I chose this body?
Where I picked my hair and pulled on skin?
Saw this beautiful soul and decided
This one would be my partner?
Point me toward Elsewhere.
Though I landed on this land,
Elsewhere and I have never been separate.
From Elsewhere, I come.
From Elsewhere, I am.
From Elsewhere, I will return.
