A Reading from Pope Silas on Love: We've Come Home

I feel it.
I know you do.
There's something neither one of us wants to face.
We have no choice.

Love transcends all.
As perilous as the journey ahead may be,
We have each other for support.
For friendship. For love.

But there is a wall.
We both have climbed it.
We're both afraid to jump.
We straddle along the edge.

I want the wall around us.
Not between.
I want the wall to be a foundation.
Not our weakness.

My walled heart is dead.
My loving heart lives.
The emptiness is gone.
We've come home.
