yet, here we are

i never imagined
things would work out
this way
in every dream
plea
prayer
manic state
or
depressive crater

i stopped following
the road signs
years ago
after
my last near fatal wreck
in a string
of near fatal wrecks
driven
by trying to do
what was right
even if that
sent me careening
over yet another
cliff

so
i ditched the wheels
decided
to maybe hoof it
let my restless legs
define
my next
syndrome

were you always waiting
an oasis
in the center
of this ever shifting
desert
or did you
stumble
from your wreckage
to just end up
in the same
self propelled
head on collision

it doesn’t matter though
not really
for you
ended up being my salvation
i
ended up your destination
as we shake the dust
off worn souls
we let
the magnetic flow
of two
half broken hearts
attract one another
across the dunes
over the oceans

there was no map
that lead us
to home
just a desperate
need

two gears
spinning autonomously
through
the vapor
of ache
to interlock
perfectly
after giving up
for so long

i never imagined
it would end up
this way
because
it seems i failed
to imagine you

yet here we are
