A kindred spirit of hope and laughter 

Raises limits that much farther

You see, you hear, but cannot touch 

The reddest blush as rose as blood itself

Lights darker depths of void of self

Not recognised these moments fell

Vivid as dreams, my thoughts imagine

Entangled... getting slow as they unravel 

What peril! what flame! will lead 

For loss is all that this achieves

So maybe less has more to gain 

Exchange for better


Of times difficult, insane!! Yet true

With core so numb

We chose our path with courage

Expressing our inner solace  

Even this leaves vulnerability... but,

Truth relieves the tensioned chains


Exclaimed for heart's sake.
