Yours and Mine

With every virtue at our disposal,
an arsenal full of good intentions,
and hearts eager to feel the shine,
we undertook a challenge, once upon a time,
in order to form a more perfect love,
conceived in liberty, matured in trust.
Philosophically waxing until much too late,
unconventional dinners in lieu of dates.
What’s mine is yours and what’s yours is mine.

A daring provocation, but we were bold,
undeterred by unforeseen circumstances,
despite our lack of a guru, a guide, a plan,
we would dissect our very natures to understand.
We boarded the train with no ending in sight,
claiming that our lives were a journey
and that we were destined to drink it all in,
though we six were confined to living in sin.
What’s mine is yours and what’s yours is mine.
