The Load ©

A heavy bag of emotions

it’s all that I have at hand.

A heavy bag of intentions

it’s what you seem to have.

Perhaps together we can share the load,

perhaps together we can carry it all,

walking side by side, we could reach the wall,

the one where we could just toss it over to the unknown

and run back to where the birds are born.

Perhaps… we could do that

or maybe we could just walk,

and side by side carry our heavy hearts

while your intentions make my emotions cry.
