Bond of Union

Bond of Union 1956 M.C. Escher

Like atoms adrift
two people
bound together
yet kept apart
with skin like an apple
cored and dissected
unseeing eyes
 unfeeling lips
unconscious connections

Bound and wound
free form but imprisoned
experimentation gone wrong
as they fall into the void

No meeting of minds
or thoughts
no words or sounds
gazing into space
for all eternity

The emptiness echoes
round hollow caverns
hear me
see me
touch me
for I am lost
and unravelled
