doesn’t have to be giving up yourself,
like being absorbed into a heap.
doesn’t have to take your personality
like that one unique snowflake shoveled from the walk.
can be two spirits,
down paths too dark to go alone and too wondrous not to share.
doesn’t have to be
grappling for control of the remote.
doesn’t have to conflict,
take offense or be treacherous.
Like sharing the best part of each other
with no fear.
is a journey.
