HEARTS INTERTWINED

Hearts intertwined like threads  lost in channels Crossing each other, hurting each other Pulling at each other, tearing each other A world of chaos and anarchy As they knot in frost Soon, we might need a scissor-like equipment To cut through in order to save ourselves Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2015
