EXTRAORDINARY VOICES

SELENE

by Linda S Barth

yours is the light by which my spirit’s born
 
~ ee cummings

 

My life has been transformed.

It was like nothing I have ever known.

He is like nothing I have ever known.

He gazed up at me from the darkness, awakening from a lost dream,

As he found truth in a brother’s promise.

I became so much more to him than a globe of lifeless stone, damned to darkness save for the sun’s stolen light.

He saw me as his miracle.  His reason to believe in the impossible.

For that is what I am to him.

And that is what he is to me.

He is my dream, my promise, my miracle.

He makes me believe in the impossible, for he did what no other ever could.

He ended my aloneness.

Until tonight, I have known nothing but eternal isolation.

There have been others. So many who believed they knew me, could become part of me.

They always tried. They always failed.

Since time began, I have been stared at, fought for, prayed to, marveled over.

The object of artists, poets, musicians, scientists, charlatans.

Seekers of truth, seekers of fame,

But only for themselves, never for me.

I have been coveted and adored.

I have been violated and abandoned.

Some desired me for my beauty.  Some wanted only to claim the unattainable.

No one ever saw me for myself.  No one ever cared.

Until tonight when that unique face smiled up at me.

When he knew I had always been waiting for him.

When he knew I was more than a dream, more than a promise.

He asks nothing of me.

He simply believes in me.

Nothing will destroy what we have shared.

He lets us both believe in miracles.
