We are two

broken people.

No, our edges do not

line up exactly,

but we don’t pretend it so.

Trauma and triumphs

overlay the scenery

of past escapades,

and here we are today.

Our love is where

the gold grows

to fill in the cracks

we are holding together,

in tenderness and splendor.

We won’t be spared

from the breakdowns of living,

but in this we are saved.
