You Are Here

You are here, at the cusp of adulthood, the key is in your hand for 21C Autumn Lodge.
He is there, teetering on the edge of maturity in an adult body, a coffee in hand, a dog by his side and the world on his tongue.

20. Until the end of time

 

 

Until the end of time

you existed alongside each other.

 

You comforted her nightmares,

And talked about the monster

That lived with her mother

In the terror that used to be home.

 

She comforted you on your bad days,

Where the bed was home more

Than she was.

 

You always got like this when life froze

And the library couldn’t distract you.

 

And she took you to a place where you could be distracted

For one long more second.

 

She took you ice skating,

where fawns were made out of humans for hours.

 

The boots felt like

Stones on your feet,

Weighing you down to the ground

So that your head couldn’t fly off

Into stormy clouds.

 

The ice was engraved with

The words you constantly tried to deny

And you learned more about her then

Than you ever had.

 

You learned on how her nose went a specific shade of pink when she fell

And you learned what her laugh sounded like

when she was trying

To fight out a burst of hurt.

And you learned how bruises

Contrasted with her skin

And how her tears

Made her more beautiful than

You could imagine.

 

She taught you that hurting was human nature

And if you were weak in the first place

You could teach yourself how to be strong.

 

She taught you that even though you hurt in a way

Which medicine couldn’t properly

Cure

She was a cure enough

For you.
