An invisible, unbreakable strand.
I’m incapable, unable to withstand
Filament strains, steady, a sliver
my dear, my hope, always, forever.
Six hundred miles, six steps, too far.
Chest tight, your smile, one breath we are
not side by side, yet nearer
my beloved, my flesh, always, forever.
Warm currents course and sway the line.
Your heartbeat thumps, steadying mine.
No hurts, no harm, never. Please ever
my love, my peace, always, forever
