Love in Worm Time

Who can know the desires of god ?
Two earthworms pass their time
on earth
Their paths cross
They have found happiness
worm happiness

Then one is pulled from the earth
bait for a fisherman
The other left
alone, in solitude
The warmth of his partner taken
gone forever, destroyed
Is there another ?

Who can know the desires of god ?
Two people passing their time
on this earth
Cross paths
Find a version
of happiness
Find an
us
Finish each others thoughts
Across continents
can find and feel each other

You stand, I stand
You naked and in the shade, me naked and in the shade
You in tears, me in pain
You cut, me bleeding
You hear a joke, I laugh
You feel sad, my heart breaks
You creating magic, me magic’s subject
You bringing an I-dont-know-what, me laughing at an I-dont-know-how

Who can know the desires of god ?
Us ruptures
You naked and in the shade
Me fully dressed and sweating
You sitting and holding your knees to your chest
Me standing, unable to see
you sitting in a chair
Me standing unable to find you
not across a continent, but in the same room
You with teeth and fingernails struggling through life
Me at a point of delirium
face to the sky howling at the moon

Who knows the desires of god ?
Who can understand destiny ?
How is love made ?
How lost ?

Are we better, different ?
Do their worm hearts feel less than ours ?
When they love
or with love lost
