They were two broken bodies built of busted parts

He was depression and disgust

She was suffering and savagery


They both were born bitter, burned from brutality

He was declared to die, doomed to decay

She was sentenced to suffocate and shatter in silence


They bleakly existed too burdened from breathing

He dreamed of disappearing into desire

She sought sanctuary to slip from the shadows


They believed their bruised beings couldn't find beauty

He dove in her darkness, dumbstruck by the delicacy

She stared at his smiles, surprised by the simplicity


They both bonded blithely because they were barren

He drew dark colored daisies dangling from stars

She screamed his song softly straight to his soul


They were two buoyant bodies built of brightness

He was determination and devotion

She was sunshine and strength
