From divine stars  
 I fell from beyond the universe
 Eon after eon and then some  
 As merely a speck of nothingness
 Through all shades of darkness  
 Until I crossed over 
 To be caught drifting in light  
 And my breath was gifted  
 And I- became  
 So I could live- this life
 For the singular purpose  
 Just to behold you
 With thine own… eyes

  1. God, it’s so consistently good. You need to stop before I lose my breath. Wow.

    A question – what do you mean by thine own eyes”? The speaker is beholding somebody he loves with her own eyes? How do you parse the ending?
