Familiar bonds deep engrained
Exclusively expressed in obligatory superficiality,
As unspoken words of affection
Felt and understood in every awkward glance and gesture.
Lifetimes of re-enforced sentiment
Spent in care-free novelty and tumultuous tribulation.
Loyalty in our devoted blood
Rewarded only in our collective facile interaction.
Incapable as we are
To satiate our needs for attachment,
We gather nonetheless
To empower our familiar bonds.
Between our solemn personas
We’re tied to chains of intimacy,
Holding us together
As our identities are weighted down.
