Stitches

Every moment with you transcends

Into a stitch pulling the torn up veins of

My roots together, looping and twisting and

Knotting their antidote into my blood.

Every moment with you transcends

Into a celestial compulsion drawing me into

Or away from parts of me that I thought

I no longer knew.

Every moment with you transcends

Into a stanza of poetry and triumph

Emanating love from within the crevices

Of my murky mind.

Every moment with you transcends

Into a tight feeling in my chest,

It feels not like cardiac arrest but

A soft collision of two continents.

Every moment with you transcends

Into the very moment I realized that

I had you stitched mercifully back into

my life again.
