Recurring theme – Terza Rima

Dear stranger, we’d once talk for hours

Details of our mundane lives, elaborate

It was all e-cards and imaginary flowers
p {
margin-bottom: 0.2em;

We pretended our souls were one, not separate

Matchbox towers of flimsy nothing dreams

As imaginary as the fairy dust you’d create
p {
margin-bottom: 0.2em;

Courage and loyalty on opposing teams,

I hope that’s not your life’s recurring theme.
p {
margin-bottom: 0.2em;
