Returning to the empty tomb

Remember
   when we both were dead

Exiled
   to the same blank page
Speaking
   seeking truth in unflinching
   brazen lines

But then
   you faded, then
   you fled

Back
   to the margins of the
Island
   once called home

Smugly
   wrapped in what you knew
Broke
   your fledgling wings

Ridicule
   in security mocking vision
Absurd
   to one who fears to

Embrace
   the view beyond
Belonging
