we're a pair of sea bound vessels
we're inclined to dare the tide
we are bored by shallow waters
through the foaming waves, we glide
.
cruising slowly then ascending
to a quick rapidity
boats are safer in the harbor
but that's not where boats should be
.
we're a pair of dogs in transit
through dark alleys, we may roam
and although in our own bodies
in each other's heart, our home
.
we will navigate by instinct
in the bliss of liberty
dogs are safer in the doghouse
but that's not where dogs should be
.
we're a pair of matching heartbeats
with a lively fevered pace
if love were measured by its speed
our hearts would win the race
.
from a beat that's slow and steady
to a fierce velocity
hearts are safer when they're guarded
but that's not what hearts should be
