“True Minds”

Matching wits, 

Sparring for the first point. 

Obscure references,

Feigning innocences,

Does this dance have longevity?

Or does it peak like a supernova; only meant to dazzle and illuminate for a short time?

Push and pull

Two dominant spirits trying to fit on a tightrope

One must concede;

Some sacrifice made without words,

Only worth the possibility of a souls marriage. 

But if the gamble should fall short,

The sky will see an explosion of melancholy

As pain sears a blinding trail through darkness

Before it fades out. 

No, this will not have a Shakespearean ending-

Leave the tragedy for others.
