Fear repositions viewpoints –
two stories become the divide
desperately seeking renewal.
Dwelling in the past – decrepit
shambles hidden behind drooping
facades – uncovers slimy residue.
The heart is vastly accommodating
replicating passages – retreating –
is personal abundance adequate?
Sighting ignorance, we are moved –
comprehend eternal restoration,
available in every up and down.
Extra-ordinary applications allow
glimpses of under-story – glean
undercurrents, like muses – reveal.
Lovers imbibe, cause concern,
deflect rather than confront,
opt for derision over appeasement.
Withdraw, glimpse vulnerability,
forgive differences in preference to
domestic bliss – marital dance.
