past ~ lives
To have lived long enough to experience that one can sustain the turning of one’s eyes to sights that compel one to ache for whole, lost kingdoms -
former oceans of sensation and action in their entirety -
To stand lately, shored on an alternate coast or mountain range, avowing only strange conquest of will and conscience for all of one’s ‘having’ enacted up to ‘now’.
