Calculus

Such a lovely calculus
you and I together
Despite whatever separates us
Despite whatever tethers

We have traveled over time
to find us teetering on a metaphor-
perhaps the ultimate sublime
of what could be our evermore

Do we fly up beyond the endless sea
or do we fall into the deep abyss
Are we only what was meant or not to be
or are we shapers of a future bliss
