we shall rise

you press on me with your love,
the heaviness of your hand much
like expectations made impossible
to reach. yet, i am consumed still,
drawn to gravity by which you pull
me, stretch me beyond bounds as though
loyalty have no limits; i stay even when
devotion wears me down, chain myself
beside you, indentured to your esteem…
i pardon it all, let it all pass… for my
faith in you is greater; one day, after
sundown, we shall rise above it all
