Even here in deepest night
we have each other.
Our path isn't like
what the others take.
They have been frustrating years,
learning that your
turned into my demotion,
only learning hours after the others.
Still, that ship has sailed and
new horizons await.
and even here in deepest night,
even as I may be losing my air,
even if I am forgotten in the future,
I am locked in your embrace, content
with a face that sees only you.
