Broken & Compatible

with time I appreciate differences 

signs of life appearing in scratches 


does it evoke pity or understanding

deeper I go the more commanding


what I fear becomes a recipe 

finished in someone else’s kitchen


what you’ve broken is a challenge

for someone who can fix it 


leaning against each other 

finding love amidst the hunger


coloring in conversations 

hues I wouldn’t’ve chosen


all the more beautiful 

coming from your hands 

◄ Before the silence falls

Our differences sleep with us ►

The last four lines are wonderfully sweet, Robert.
