Mag 152 — two

It is simple,
really. Who
they were then
they will ever be:
two grasping
two giving
two living
and apart;
two loving
in love
with grasping
and giving
and living
and loving.

Written for The Mag: Mag 152 that inspired with the above photo prompt (image: stock photo).

Berowne~ Thank you so much.

izzy~ I am flexing my imagination to wonder what you had in mind. :)

Helen~ You are so sweet; thanks.
