Change (the prequel 2)



Love’s avalanche was the weight of life’s sliding scale as you cried out in anguish to stay love’s cruelty. We witnessed her duality and the loss of losing; those stains never heal and I feel the shattering of yours, and Freedom’s heart as she moves in and out of passion. When a tree falls in the forest each limb is missed, it doesn’t go unnoticed and neither have you.


With each tear a petal descends, I couldn’t hear it but felt it as if I were the forest itself. A departed soul becomes ‘the sacrifice that reinvigorated a land’; we hear you, and we feel that rush of love that will free Freedom and release Change.


Love’s sliding scale is never easy, but we will breathe because you couldn’t.
