Oh when it starts

Two wholly new things

Recognizable yet usually different

You’re this I’m not

How curious is that

You look the same

As me but different

You’re not a mirror

Yet I see myself

In you or parts

Of me in you

Or parts of me

That I am missing

And want so desperately

So I say things

That you enjoy hearing

That keeps you close

Like those lines thrown

To boats to tie

Them to the shore

This is what it’s

Like when relationships start
