The Cave Wall

She placed her heart in the granite wall,
For it became too heavy to bear,
And she walked away, light as a feather.

He looked to fill the hole in his soul,
With something that did not evaporate,
As vapors clinging on summer dew.

So the two passed themselves,
Unburdened, untethered,
Strange shadows cast on a prison wall.
