Love Land Language 

We dared to love, he said

In the land of known belongings but

Unknown beholders.

In the homes of togetherness but

Understandings unfelt.

We dared to love, he said.

He replied, we loved

In the bodies that were unknown to us

We thrived, we spoke

The language bereft of meaning, the words

Unheard; we loved

In the land where it is not love.

Let’s fly, he said

To the land that is unknown

Unknown till the stretch of the known.

He replied, he giggled

He smiled, with eyes wide open, his hair

Flicked aside by his finger

He murmured,

If there’s a place for us, where would it be?

To the land that is known but unknown to our feelings

Or the land unknown

That has no word for our language.
