By Hend Al Hammadi

we’re people with problems
become one another’s distraction
with each other’s hope for attention
creates a significant form of attraction

knee over knee
while our minds travel seas
displacing every fear
from our bodies

toxins release
thoughts fly free
found within each other,
our happy

unlike every other time
this felt as if it was a crime
yet we ignored every abiding sign
despite it all, we gave each other peace of mind
