Red thread

By

was never one to believe in myths

but then one day I saw

red thread around two slender wrists – 

on one end it was yours

the stars aligned; my heart rate inclined

for no gods can deny – 

this bond will form in all the worlds 

and pass the test of time

warm, gentle hands to unclench my fists

and icy heart, you thawed

I found myself the best of gifts –

how could one ask for more?

all knots untangled; struggles unravelled

as waves return to shore

spirit laved by your gaze

the symphony, ablaze –

to us, forevermore!

two souls collide, for always entwined

my heart alight – divine!

red thread around our slender wrists – 

the other end was mine
