Locked Together with a Key

we started off small

locked together like sisters

the world against us

humanity was growing

growing forcefully

 

the lock never broke 

we anticipate it never will

although the connection with others grew

never separated us 

but concerned me 

 

thriving a new person

you grew assured of yourself

I grew blundered still serene 

 

there's part of me that worries

remembering me as the other side

you’ll never float away

I won’t let you 

 

I’II dwell on it

must feel certain

certain that you won’t disappear

 

maintain the trust in myself

certitude as the key 

never disintegrate keep a tight hold

be an element of the lock 

persevere the key

A really good poem that reads like a song. I also noticed how everything was in lowercase too.
