Elemental Poetry

Have I ever told you, I think

Our souls were woven from the same thread

Maybe that’s why during the fray

We held on for dear life

Till the elements tore us apart

The tailor’s snippetty snip shears.

Have I ever told you, I think

That love is everything and nothing

A doubled edged sword fashioned from light

We held on for dear life

Till the elements cut us into pieces

The butcher’s choppetty chop knives.

Have I ever told you, I think

That we should have been telepathic

So much lost in words that do no justice to these thoughts

We held on for dear life

Till the elements pulled us apart

Like nothing I can ever imagine.
