Addition +

Several years we’ve cross-crossed
I felt this kindred closeness
It wounded me during the silence
Absence is a pool of lonesomeness

Those dark eyes are devastating
Burning a hole clean thru me
Always at a distance
But friendship grew instantly

Life is dancing across a volcano
Fire at my feet, electricity in my soul
The heart’s tumblers align to open
Thoughts of you fill the hole

No blank canvass but much white space
Room for your unique expression
Blending colors and new adventures
Enough to portend a new confession

The pieces are greater, the pie can be larger
Gaining is not losing independence
Adding is not subtracting freedom
There is no fence

Worlds don’t need to collide
Orbits can intersect along their path
Without falling from the sky
I have done the math
