wondrous copper disks, full of life,

warmth and eternity.

hands slide together becoming one,

no her, no me, just us.

a never-ending past, present and future.

awareness that led you to see

you are now whole.

all emotions, thoughts, everything you are

and needed is here in front of you.

someone to complete you, ground you,

sees you for all that you are.

three seconds – a lifetime or nothing

as a burning pain fills you.

taking everything that is right and beautiful

from every cell of your being.

burrows deep in to your soul, searing it,

driving into memory all that you had of her.

ushering back in the two-dimensional figure

you once thought lost in that three seconds

it took to say hello.
