this is a sword

this is a sword
it has two edges
they are equally sharp

this is a symbol
a metaphor
for words

words need a home
a sheath of some sort
perhaps a body

we can share a bed
keep the lights on
lose ourselves

there are wounds
there are scars
we can share dreams

hope is an anchor
that too is a metaphor
let it be a home

fear is a sword
where is it buried
close that door
