Based on the love triangle at the heart of Wuthering Heights...
Awake My Love
In sleep, he calls me out – evoking memories
That will never be; swept away unbidden on a current
Of emotion, and apathy – stronger than the ocean’s tide
Found only on the sea of love.
Reality is left behind – to be continued…
The present is a blur of clarity – in a place
That cannot be, but is; in a time that is not time at all,
And yet, is eternity…
The time and place are love – deeper than ourselves,
Where and when will and desire cease,
And the reality of the world left behind
Is revealed as falsehood.
A destiny sealed by love – against which we have fought
And not won – yet we have not lost…
We face the false reality we have chosen;
We face the true reality we have denied,
But not destroyed – lest this destroy us.
Denial is useless, dreams are vain;
Only love is real – only love will remain.
