My heart lies outside my chest
Sun warmed skin gilded with snow. I see her, luminous in the frosted light as the suns rays creep over the mountains. Crisp mountain air, she burrows closer to me.
I watch her sleep, is she in the fade? A fingertip to twiching ears, a gentle carress to smooth a furrowed brow. She blinks, her eyes open, unknowing of sight still veiled. Smiling lips as her gaze meets mine. And palm to palm as holy palmers kiss.
Sorrow fills my chest, secrets I want to whisper against her smile. I breathe:
‘Ir abelas, vhenan'
My heart lies outside my chest.
