Parallel

The lines move so quickly:

Perpendicular one moment;

Parallel the next.

What once seemed so different

Is so close to the same.

I once asked you to explain

How we can forgive.

I suppose I knew

The way we all know

How to pretend.

We once seemed so different,

I the bright-winged demon,

You the shadowed angel.

The view has changed;

We're still the same.

Life line, heart line,

The lines of our lives.

Perfectly different

Is perfectly the same,

Perfectly parallel.
