One always feels more than the other.

They hug

walk different directions

he looks back

she keeps walking.

That’s how it goes you know?


Always look back

Feel everything so strongly

Give more than you get

The little kid who squeezes the puppy too tight

and a worried mother cautioning

“Be nice”


Love with vulnerability


Fires blazing

And around every corner

there is a chance

An exchange of love with the same intensity
