unlikely alliance

the philosophical prince and the empress of articulation

the boy with the thorn in his side and the girl who drank the moon

two lost souls with questionable ties in absurd past lives

tangled together like mismatching shoe laces

this… is a very unlikely alliance

an unconditional accident

between quintessentially existential and quelled rebellion

equally unattainable and irresistible, he and i

a clever counterpoint paralleled in a subtle harmony

 rhetorical and distant strumming an acoustic guitar on a Southern trail

reciprocal and devoted reciting erotica to an Appalachian sunrise

    Between the lines, understand her, accept her – fall in love with her. 🙂
