be still my heart

holding hands, they gallop away
keepers of a thousand secrets
players of countless games

sleeping, they turn the same way
bodies spooning each other as if they were wombmates
settling in, rising together

laughing, they throw back their heads in unison
bodies lit up with glee
arms flailing, chests heaving

fighting, they madly engage
clashing for but a moment
hugging, moving on

loving, they have my heart
holders of my affection
brother and sister, taking my breath away
