And it’s hard to fathom how,
but she did it.
She did it without cognizance
and seemingly without effort.
Love and other things
seem like distant galaxies to the common man.
Mystic and charming,
with little to distinguish the real
from the forged.
But she loved him
with a familiarness that was uncommon
and with an un-maligned heart.
This was her secret and her power.
She loved him so relentlessly,
that he forgot what it felt like to be alone.
