Symbolon


I shall hold on to my piece of the bone,
knuckle bone, they say;
you hold on to yours.
Interlocking symbols
of our undying love.
Twenty years from now,
we shall see if they still match,
still seal the space in between.
If they don’t,
we shall have arthritis
between us, the bone rust
of twenty years.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
