like a distant sister;

strange and unexpected,

you bent your unfamiliar ear,

to me and all my sorrow.


like a kindred spirit,

you have been here,

you have walked this path,

you have fought this war,

you have survived this pain,

you share these scars.


like a long lost friend,

you held out a big glass bowl;

to catch my tears,

let me pour out all my fears,

and spilled them out,

away from me.


like a distant sister;

you let me reach out,

to you and your past,

you shared your pain,

opened up old wounds,

to save me new cuts.


darling, distant,

strange, sister,


we will both be poetry again.
