Zora: The Coming of The Sun

I'll be loving you...

"...and as I look down the aisle I took one last gaze into a distance so near and I rejoice-- for what he sent to tear us apart only grew into a tight right fist raised to the heavens, a stronger embrace that serves as my earthly protection, a village who camps around us to rejoice in the power of ONE. Now with tears shed, lips locked and hands raised we surrender an unspoken nod, affirming ANOTHER VICTORY WON." -Whitney Wilfred, The Bride

I Almost Forgot About You

PoetryArvia WalkerComment

Hey you...

For a moment I didn’t recognize your face.
I was staring  you dead in the eyes but you didn’t look quite the same.  
You’d gotten a little older; time and life made your eyes a little dimmer.
I almost walked right by you but thank God for something there that still seemed familiar.

Where did you go hiding? What made you crawl into place?

I almost forgot about you my friend, I could barely remember your name.
My love, you were gone for so long and I hadn’t even realized that you were away.
But thank God for double takes and learning from mistakes
Because if it weren't for second chances, my dear, I could have lost you that day.

Dear Mister Perfect Destruction...

I saw a shooting star today…it reminded me of you.

A fleeting love; bursting into flames once entering the earth’s atmosphere, only to crash and burn upon arrival to the surface.

But you were mine…If only for just a moment.

We spent it in the sky high; completely consumed by each other.

Somehow I found perfect peace in the middle of our storm. 

Your chaos was comforting.

I felt safe in your harm.

We were…The perfect destruction.
