two are better than one

The poetics link-up challenge today is to write a poem using idiomatic expressions.

two are better than one

come to me
let's put our heads together
life is too bitter a pill
to swallow alone

burning that candle
from both ends to the middle
left us bone tired
barking up wrong trees
and weary beyond weary

we can hide away
snuggled in close
two peas in a pod
find our comfort
and refreshment there

linking at the pub today

I love this. I'm a cat person and before one passed mine were two peas in a pod for sure. Great use of idioms. -Mike

I lost some friends over the years and I didnt realize their importance until my life upended. Now, I'm more purposeful and make investments in promoting friends who will stay
