When Two Equal One       (Elfje series or singles)

By JulesPaige


Who knew…

You would perfect

Cover thievery to an



Deepest sleep

I am woken;

Thunderous lion night breathing –



Coincidence, chance;

Once two strangers

Took respectful bonding vows –



Forty years

We have created 

Our own semaphoric love



Ours secure

Thriving with humor;

Boundless, breathless, blissful, bonding
