The Birth of Us

There were days I dreamt of you, nights I prayed for you.

With blood between my thighs I cried for you, with love we made you.

My body is no longer mine, but ours.

Here in my womb is your original home. Your watery creation myth settled deeply in me.

Just as you are born, so am I.

The maiden in me is laid to rest with you.
