I have loved you for centuries
I apologize if i ever hurt you sometime in our past lives,
Preventing us from being together this time
But do you remember me?
Before being my un-requested savior in suffering, when it was my turn to do the saving.
Before we forced each other to be at arms length
We were constantly in heart's reach
I love you
I would say repetitively until our memory returns to 1570 BC
You first said it to me atop Mount Olympus
I, Aphrodite, you, forever my Ares.
Even before Christ,
God knew we were meant to be
Despite my offering to Hapheastus.
The It has been written and re-scribed
From mythology to the current Shakespearean tragedy
Remember Me, Don't you ?
This is beyond a Midsummer's Night Dream
As we savored the delectable reality of love in silence
Fire ablaze and unmatchable
You, my weakness
Butterflies flutter at the idea of our history
Orbiting beyond Andromeda continuing to capture falling stars
Before astronomy was an accepted science
You were the constellation to my unspoken galaxy
Remember me now?
Amidst whimpers and exclamations provoked by intimate singularity
As if we are frozen between extinction and recreation
Will you remember me?
When ego's no longer translate into the fear of reliving dreams of heart-filled fulfillment
Our story of ardency dates back to heiroglyphics
No language to clearly interpret yet we spoke telepathically
as eyes meet in the darkness and smiles speak in the moonlight
Children's laughter in the daylight
Echoes beyond heartbeats in the afternoon
I remember you.
Alone, blurry eyed, stargazing -beyond memories-
As you refuse to talk hold of my hand
Murder created in the distance of dying opportunities
A fool for you in the past couple of lifetimes
You seem to not recall the hankering blaze while skin melt into another
Lips not once touching the other
Embraces saying all the words we wasted time not speaking of
Did you forget the shudders as I remind you of your unforgotten name
Digging deeper into the confines of my soul
I cannot, arrive anymore while wishing to be your only destination
-Your amnesia pains me-
Since I clearly recall our many marriages
Churches with roses
Lanterns in the sky
Against your wishes I bit the apple out of curiousity
Furious as you watched me pay the price for my intrigue
Our kiss amid the stars, two meteors collided and a constellation was born
When we were once king and queen relishing in our Empire built in unison
Our first kiss last lifetime where you smiled and stopped because you couldn't keep it in
It was a historic day-Martin Luther King Day-
-You reminded me then we go way back-
Before words became empty and warmth felt by phalanges were mutually spoken paragraphs
How could you forget me?
If we have loved us for centuries
I was made from your rib
to equally accompany and complete you in life's journey
Remember me, Don't You?
