30 Poems, 30 Days 2020: Dyad (Day 25)


She went back to the island that had connected them

Even though people, including her friends

Didn’t want her to go, she went anyway to stay

This time she wasn’t running away or hiding

She knew that she needed time by herself

She lost a part of herself that was a part of him

Even though she knew he would always be with her

It didn’t feel like it was enough, no one understood

She knew that he sacrificed everything for her

She wanted to believe there was a reason

She would learn in nine months time

Why she survived to birth two who looked like him

A boy and a girl, it was like history to repeat

Later he came to her as a ghost to tell her it was time

She found her babies training in defense, and

She told them it was time to get off the island

They were needed to defend the galaxy

Just as the dyad did years before

His ghostly presence stood next to them

Which made them four, ready to take on the future

The flowers she had gathered awaited on the rocky shore
