Elizabeth and DarcySometimes,
you close your eyes
to shut out the whole world
Pretending,
you’re the only one in it
For a piece
of that illusory peace

you close your eyes
And leave them shut
Just to see if,
when you open them
the other person is still there

Speakers interchanged
But the words stayed true.
