It is the spaces between

Our atoms that make us solid.

Otherwise we would pass

Through each other~

Apparitions of intrigue

And desire for connectivity.


It is the spaces between

Our hearts that make us love

And bond our souls together.

Otherwise we would move

Through this life unentangled,

Apparitions of Narcissus

Desiring nothing but our own ends.


It is this bond that keeps me alive.

She is more to me than my soul can express~

She is my soul.


Should I be positive on paper?

Should I let you know I have known

Beauty and love?

Do my words suggest otherwise?


Life is pain and pain is growth~

Growth brings change, and change hope~

Hope breeds life and life is love and pain.


I have known love and life,

Change and growth and pain~

But most of all, I found love in life~

The one with whom my heart has bonded,

And hers to me.

About ~Drew

I am a survivor of childhood torture. Each day, I put one foot in front of the other, moving forward. To do any less would spell my own destruction. My music/poetry/prose deal with the devastating effect of this kind of abuse on a human being: me. My experiences/thoughts/ideas/misconceptions are exposed here for all to see. Here. I am lain bare, naked, hidden only be the cloak of anonymity.

    Bonded on a molecular level. That is just about as deep as any bond could go. With so many people going through so much stuff that divorce rates are higher than marriages that last it is refreshing to see that kind of commitment. Kinda rang like a song here too. I am helping my friend the rock star drummer at drum day in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Sunday they are trying to break the world record for the most drums played at the same time while they collect money and food for the food pantry for the needy. Should be over 400 drum kits at the event. Never know who you’ll see at this gig!
    Take care
    Oh….and here’s my bit just for fun:

    I already read this and thought I had commented. I like how the words are almost a trail of breadcrumbs bringing you to the end of the “story”.

What say you?
