(Featured in my short film, “Love’s Invitation“, winner of Best Screenplay)

As I held your hand,

I felt the last breath leave your lips,

Taking my tenderness with it.

Buried under emptiness,

I only prayed for the sun

To lovingly scorch my body,

So that I might be swept away,

Reborn as beautiful as I always saw you.

Every place I escaped to

Carried the echoes of your heart,

Deafening my soul

So that I might hear for the first time.


I found myself

Scattered in free-fall,

Pulled through the Kosmos

And I saw you.

I saw you,


In everyone.

And in that moment

I remembered that you were me,

And all that remained

Was Love.
