Marital Bonds... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

buried underneath their marital bonds
is love, and friendship and trust

the tie that binds them both cannot be

you hurt one, you hurt them both
even if they are not united

their tongues speak a language of their own
even if there is no word, or a symbol used

it is not their brains that decipher
it is their hearts humming

understanding comes like a curtain blown by air
a presence felt and accepted without question

in bed they dream same dreams
in the bathroom they have the same water

take one, and without delay the other shall follow
old age is their best show.
