Premium Member My Brother

	gasp for breath

vessels of poetry

pain disappears
	tears recede

love floats above the sea
	tides of sadness

	planted in marshlands

	friendship bloomed

living for words
	no longer matters

I embrace my brother
	love his might

with blueprints for the next big thing,
