Lovers amiss, groping in the night
each to the other a flame still bright
yet unsure, lost, lacking in faith
each to the other a half of a whole
never severed, –still safe.
Undying, unfailing hope deep within
the merciless boundless connection will win,
yet still hidden and nestled in pain
–of unlikely comfort.
Uncertain resolve still does sustain.
Reaching in darkness
withdrawn in despair
time ticks away as forever is here
in the lonely beginningless endless affair
of two lovers amiss in the tale they must bear.
