Strengthening The Bond

The distance between us
is an elastic band,
ready and able to
contract and expand.
At times it can stretch
to the utmost extreme,
requiring such energy
with no where to lean.
One side gets hooked,
unable to release
from the rising tensions
which forever increase
the need for readjustment,
for give and take
it’s lack of awareness
which leads to a break.

An observant eye is
kept on our connection,
making sure to detect
any slight imperfection.
Together hooking up
to create the slack,
so often required to
bring closeness back,
dispelling the tension,
relieving the strain,
strengthening a bond

which will always remain.
