choking on furor,
drowning in melancholy,
creating a temporary rift.
Lost, two parallel lines,
traveling on a flawless path
cool distance dissipated,
as they anchored themselves to each other.
Familiar strangers’ appointed shortcomings
into mandatory deficiencies necessary
in constructing a greater whole.
Confident in their metamorphosis,
the newly formed angles
relaxed into a straight line
free to infinitely expand
into opposite directions,
forever fused in resilient friendship.
