Parallel Universes

Written by Judah Nagler



when the night
has donned my shadow
when the breathing slows
and the mind lets go
the moonlight, silently
opens a door

strike me like a match
be your flame
share a secret
and a glance, telling
falling in love
what a lost feeling
i bit down hard

our love
like grains of sand
held in the grip
of an open hand
if in time
scattered by the wind
we held too tight

love never demands
love never coerces
we're the dream
of each other
a parallel universe

underneath the trees
and the rock
there burns a fire
i'd long forgot
like the sun
hidden away
i feel you at my core

but you are not
the piece i'm missing
neither broken
or in need of fixing
if dull or unspoken
darlin, let's sing
it is the point

deliverance
from my pregnant pause
was no more pressing
than fragrant flowers
in the book of the sacred
ours, that we still write

love never demands
love never coerces
we're the dream
of each other
a parallel universe
