Ending with ly’s (lies)…

he loves her, religious
she loves, routine
both perpetually
both present and sure,
yet both, skeptically

or so it seems

he knows this, now
she understands, in circumstance
but both know the truth
and by chance, typically

he goes about the way, unfazed
she comes and goes, in doubt
both recognizing one another
loving along the way, in route

he sees no end in sight
she sees no other way to be
both see this as necessary,
a requirement for them to believe,

he doubts that she ever will
she has doubt in him, never still
they belong in the way they are
hurt, with a hope to heal

he longs to touch her,
she hopes to feel,
