Another Life by Abriana Jette

Another Life
.
I met him before the wild of the present
another life entirely
(each century our story widening)
.
I dreamt it might have happened
grew frightened at the untold unraveling
felt the ocean sweep my body
.
bone by bone to dust wept quietly
woke up another person entirely
leaving a dozen centuries widening
.
behind me the wild present
and in every retrospection
in every life I have been divided in
.
beyond the confines of this body
though still a bodily calling
his voice in every version
.
