The Puzzle Poem by michele kostelnik

The Puzzle



They locked into each other like
lover and friend,
long lost relations, twins divided
by time.
He bit her shoulder and entered
her blood forever.
She bit his tongue and changed
the tone of his song.
They walked together astonished
not to be lonely;
They sought their loneliness like
lost dogs.
But they were joined together by
tongue and shoulder.
His nightmares woke her, her
daydreams startled him.
She feared she had no yearning
left to write with.
He feared she'd leave him dry
and glide away.
They spoke of these things
and locked together,
she figured out the jig-saw
of his heart, unscrambled him,
placed the pieces with
precision nothing came
apart.
