notes on a genesis

In that beginning all was formless and empty, a silent darkness hovered over the surface of the deep as the force of two intertwined souls swept over the waters.

I saw you in the depths as those two beings collided, becoming one. There you were woven together before anyone could know that you were to be.

Your heart in time with a beat outside the beginnings, middles and endings that hem in stories lived and told. Well before you greeted the light of this broken world you had changed the course of history, drawing lives together even as they fled from each other driven by fear, pride and pain.

Were they her eyes or his that you opened to see, his ears of hers that would listen rather than speak through lips pursed in silent remembrance of the unknown generations coursing through your veins.
