we sizzle;
Apart, we yearn

we grow;
Separately, we learn

we’re not;
Divorced, we’ll be

was difficult;
Not for me

    Very beautifully explained that every person who is important in life has some limitations too. You have written in depth with few words.

    I haven’t tried this form of poetry, but this, this seems like what it was meant for. Well done.

    I love the word ‘sizzle’. I wanted all the words to be this sharp and specific. The repetition of ‘Together’ was really effective in this short form, as was having rhyme! Good work, Sanch.

    Loved it! You are so talented. So few words and a whole lot of meaning. I won’t be surprised if this too gets most votes or editor’s pick 🙂
