Singularity

Scared of time repeating
Sitting with one hand shaking,
And the other stuck.
Glued to the fast-forward button,
One instant ripples through time.
Crippling me.
I sit staring at a pond,
Hoping for calm waters,
But hating the man I see.
Wanting to drown the pain,
With anything at hand.
Then I met you…
One instant frozen in time.
A life saving moment.
You saw past my scars,
Past my pain and anger.
You drew emotions up,
Feelings I didn’t think existed.
One second can change you,
But years can heal you.
A patchwork of choices,
Brought us here
It still feels like yesterday — Everyday.
5 year of joy flow into 10.
You are the brush to my canvas,
And the pen to my pad.
And…
You provided clarity,
At the beauty of a singularity.
