heaves and sighs finally slowing and eyes beginning to focus,
we lay entwined on the gray, satiny sheets,
damp and rumpled beneath us as we floated back to this plane,
and I couldn’t help but feel as if we’d evaporated,
two becoming one dense stratus,
a unifying blanket hugging the horizon and stretching to somewhere other,
some sacred place created by you and I where my heart was able to reach the door that it had locked,
where yours blew in,
seeing the never-before-seen and knowing the unknowable,
knowing me,
and the two of us each knowing more,
becoming more than we were before,
becoming one

and I wondered –
will anything ever feel this real?
