Name Change #Poetry #Journey

does a name change
bind us any closer together?
does it provide any assurances?
in a relationship
bonded at the heart
can we be two separate people?
and still be one?
our personalities differ
previous life experience
contrasting and converging
what kind of connection
do you need
to feel close
to experience intimacy
but still retain
your own identity

  1. I really enjoyed this! I think it is important for us to remain true to ourselves in all of our relationships. We can certainly be a partnership or part of a team while remaining our independence. I think both are equally important.
