RelationshipStart

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
