ALIGNMENT

I grew just as strong

and fast

as

you

every day filled with 

the beauty

of

two

we lined up perfectly

meant to be

and I felt our shadows could almost 

touch

at noon

that delicious moment

coming soon

each leaf reaching

my whole soul a smiling

glowing green

 

entranced by each branch

each bud

each leaf that is

   You

filled by my world of

   Two

until one day

a shift of wind

your trunk bends back

your frame gives in

leans just enough so I can see

the other tree

that is not

   me
