The Tall Tale
He emerged from his underworld of lostness. Into the dawn. With that sleek, sweet beast by his feet. The one who'd kept him warm after that other him walked out. Way back when in the not so long ago of being torn apart. Time splitting open 'til he landed on that old familiar dock he'd half-forgotten. Right where he'd left it in that other dimension they used to call home, together...
How much broader the scope of every nook and cranny appeared in this new light. On the other side of a fight within himself that he never thought he'd win. Alighting one the other side of love to gaze across soft and spiky ripples of time. Waiting to board new possibilities as their boat saunters to the private dock.
Nestling into its sunken leather seats — demons and the beast in tow — arms outstretched and head tilted back to the glow of infinity. Where the reflection of that same old him doesn't feel quite the same at all anymore... 'til everything flows in the one direction all of a sudden. Luxuriating in the gentle hum of a breakthrough tuned to the motor beneath his seat shuttling through memories he's no longer afraid of. Charting a path through glittering shards of sunlit riptides. Adventuring, again, beneath the early morning glow of a day he'd given up hoping for.
