the 9th interlude

chords repeatedly playing
from all directions
of never-ending life of life
between the symphonic duo
on the summit of ‘’nine forevers’’
in a day and all days
of infinite worlds
in those arms of cuddles
in altitudes of love-struck
like interfacing towers of joy
beyond laughters
because together''we'' always love
always be loved
my love
my always, YOU.
