Friendship

True friendship
Does not possess trials or examinations
Neither is it feigned or coerced
It is pristine just like the sandy beaches
Porous crystals of sand that moisten to an adhesive
As time streams in, in the absence of motive or gain
Fortifying a simple truth – that blood and water are near-equals
Having the same consistency and similar viscosities
Where a distinct kind of love is found
When two bodies have no innate chemistry
Or polar bonding strength in-between
Just two souls brought together
In fate’s collision and age’s magnetism
When one compass basks in one orientation
To journey far and long to one true north
While constantly looking back and recollecting
Footmarks from a common south
Embellished with a breastful of amity
Always walking abreast
To the open breasts of time
