"Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies. ~ Aristotle
What exists between you and me
is the only thing like that
in all of creation.
There is the thing that is you
and the thing that is me
and there is then
the thing that exists between
made of the stuff of you and
the stuff of me.
like paints mixing on a palette
like lemon juice mixed into sugar water
like salt and pepper in a bowl together
having become something all it's own
It could and can and will
between any other someones
What exists between you and me, friend,
is a thing
a living, breathing, dancing, speaking, loving, laughing, learning, being
When we became friends, you and I,
life breathed into that brand new something
like air into a balloon
and it began to float
and dance on the breeze
and bounce on the ground along a path in Central Park
and hide behind
and tie to the branch of a high, high tree.
It became a something
that will always be.
