He was a tree

His mind was an insipid ocean of subtle waves

His thoughts were always

His heart was never



Duplicitous as the day

Weak as the absolute

Courageous as the seed

Complacent as the time before

Wasteful as the weary

Unnerving as the unknown



She was a cloud

Her words were an expected arrival of loss

Her memories were dancing

Her existence was still



Chivalrous as the night

Strong as the destitute

Timorous as the pine

Determined as the world to come

Careful as the cunning

Beautiful as the beset
