Pronounce Thee

intimate honest discussion
can often serve to soften the impact of blows  
where hard heads create concussions  
through clashing ideologies and approach to artistry  
existing paradoxical to love's language  
flowing through veins and arteries  
pumped feverishly from heart valves of truth  
bringing two mule-stubborn halves into    
a whole union  
thus is the communion of the  
human experience  
an ongoing experiment of sorts  
a meshing of this here..un-fleshing of that there  
'tis the matrimony of  
of sanctimony and acrimony  
expressed from a lifetime of self-righteousness  
trying to re-imagine harmony through a  
very delicate balancing act  
where old dogs clumsily seek to learn    
new tricks  
burying bones of the past  
while inner-standing that words can  
hurt a helluva lot more than  
the sticks and stones  
thrown by grown folks seasoned with spite  
like it's a rite of passage  
what a conundrum it can be  
humbling oneself    
while remaining true to oneself  
mumbling epithets under breaths...biting tongues  
stumbling in a brand new world  
where someone else requires consideration  
outside the fringes of the  
emotional narcissist  
daunting becomes the realization  
teetering on the brink  
of a sink or swim spectrum  
it can end in the glorious story of twin flames    
or the obituary of two petty arsonists  
it can be a building of a magnificent fireplace    
or the slow..slow burning of a bridge  
cuz matchstick souls  
were always bound for human combustion  
in some way shape or form  
within the prism of this pressurized  
time/space continuum
called reality
