Some choose to feed relationships
they know beforehand to be flawed
wasting flames in soggy fireplaces
surrendering to warmth once outlawed

Forget all defenses and swing for the fences
reveal deepest troves to win honesty back
and capture dreams as brains rewrite their senses
boring holes in walls erected after every attack

Overflowing with affection that can never be spared
sparks of faith invade doubts that scream of failure
fruits of joy that grow larger when shared
open minds to free prisons from their jailer

Intimacy is an act of love and courage
a plot of defiance against faint-hearted characters
one gritty and unpretentious display of kindness
artfully writing an epic story in daily chapters
