Faces change yet remain familiar,
eyes wide with paranoia,
cracked glass and minds
clear signs of pain.
Distance and fear grow,
pacts and pledges of togetherness,
where are those opinionated tongues,
careful and positively meek.
Navigate changing pathways,
cat’s eyes set boundaries tight turns,
mind and mileage drive adventures,
on land that perpetually burns.
‘Energy is Everything’, a mantra, the ace up my sleeve,
intuitive, empathic, complicated soul,
heart set vision; of the day she leaves.
