Two Hearts of Stone

Two Hearts of Stone

Come together in union

A purpose unrealized

Beating in their false images

And granite confines.

They begin to fragment and crack

The Stones’ blood eases through

Trying to reform the wall

But the beats of time

Cannot endure the inevitable.

 

Two Hearts of Stone

Shattered

Lying in the remnants, now sand

Being carried away by waves

To the bottom of the sea.

With each cleansing cycle

And each ray of light

Holding possibilities in its glimmer

Two Hearts of Flesh

Beat new life.
