Split apart
like a peach
at the banquet table
We are

Cut adrift
like a lost lifeboat
floating on silent seas
We are

Broken down
like a grandfather clock,
portentous but still
We are

Forever lost
like keys to forgotten locks,
keeping secrets
We are


like twins from broken homes
finally found
We will be

like a babe in arms
rocked to sleep
We will be

like cuffs of finely tailored
business suits
We will be

Yet redeemed
as fallen angels find
still beating wings
We will be
