I'm new and was happy to see a sci-fi / fantasy group here at nexus. Happy, but not surprised because they seem to go together. I think that many scifi / fantasy authors in years past felt compelled to write in the genre for fear of their families safety. To write critical non-fiction or even thinly veiled fiction in a setting too similar for the comfort of those in power could a career or life ending mistake for many authors in certain times and cultures. Through creation of entirely new worlds, science fiction and fantasy can give those critical voices another level of  plausible-deniability to the sensitive egos of those in power. It can also relieve authors from the burden of being "realistic", i.e. reflecting how things are or have always been and instead allow imagining worlds that could be. And no goal has ever been achieved without first being imagined.

I have loved you, free and wild

As storms raged through our souls.


And I have loved you, meek and chaste

While days played out their hidden goals.


Sometimes I’ve had to turn and run

From feelings so intense


The bonds of silk felt just like chains

Bound tight, to stop my breath.


At other times, the gossamer threads

Hung loosely, yet held us tight.


For in those times, I understood

How love could rule, its touch so light.


For better, for worse, the poets say

As we travel this road of life.


Together, alone, it matters not

For our love’s still burning bright.


And with the years, it slowly fades

To embers, cooled to the touch.


But still in memory, our youth alive

Bright flames of love ignite.


For when this mortal song is done,

Our dance through time has stilled.


Love remains the constant change,

The triumph, the heartbreak, the will.
