A quick little free verse poem. I may post more over the next few days.

And when you'd wrap your arms around me, I wasn't scared

Even as the ocean swallowed us and the sun scorched our backs and the gales tore gashes in the earth

Even as the sky crumbled and the ground under our feet quaked and my bones began to tremble

Even as we plummeted into the untarnished

Bold pioneers that we were

Falling into the new

Together.
