He & I

We stood there he & I

listening to the silence that fell around us

the hush of the leaves,the stillness of the night and the heaviness of the breeze

the bright moon disappeared behind a cloud

there were no hopes

no shared dreams

just two different goals.

We wondered at the similarities

of our differences.

We held no grief

no penance

just the penury of the soul

the joy and other assorted items.
