offer

i want 
to give you everything

my patience
when you need time
my silence 
when you need space

my comfort
when you don't want to ask 
my love
when you don't expect it

my stupidity 
when you want distraction
my madness
when you want to let loose

my readiness
when you want to experiment
my stillness
when you want peace 

my understanding 
when you need to be in sync 
my acceptance
when we disagree 

i want to give you 
everything
take it.

fort

i broke my fort 
for you 

and now i don't know
what to do 

because even if i build
the walls all over again

you're already inside

your wealth.

connect

i laughed
and laughed
and laughed
till i choked

and then
i took a breath 

caught your eye
and we burst out again 

some best friends
are made overnight

inseparable


softly
sound the notes
scattered at first 

the right hand 
light,
tentatively touches
the ivories 

the left hand 
guttural, lends the song
form,
shaping it.

the two
play with each other
tugging, pulling

the right hand
laughs
trills
like a girl

the left hand 
more masculine,
rooted 
forms the bass
on which she builds 

they move
towards each other 
mostly

but at times, leave
to randomly float 
into rubatos

returning
in joy  
sometimes, the notes 
too close to each other

sometimes
at octaves
too far apart 

noisy, turbulent 
but keeping time always
through the rests

making peace 
through the tests. 

when you learn the song
you learn to play
both hands together 

two 
is a melody.
