Platonic Love
Nurtured over the years
This beautiful bond free
From the worries of grocery bills
Pots and pans, and Fantastic Bleach!
An exceptional blessing if you find it
Meeting of two minds
Sharing and caring unlimited
Free in spirit
From the cage of commitment and contract
You’ve finally cemented the bond
Only to find
That all the while you were reading the same book
But never on the same page!
You were absorbing the chapter on Trust
He was stuck on Lust
Should you give up and severe this bond
Or try to persuade
That one form of love has but a limited cycle
The other, longevity much longer
Should you instead
Seek it only in your next of kin?
