Separate, yet inseparable,
Unite, but only momentarily,
The threshold of longing, overwhelming,
Their struggle, a matter of time.
They come together, almost,
Such that they cannot be parted.
Alas, not so soon,
For they cannot remain heedless.
Consciousness, destructive; Separation, painful.
At long last, I let go.
Yet, they resist.
A few moments, hence,
They unite, never to be separated.
The eyelids close,
And slumber seals my soul.
