We’re tightrope walkers
Close but never touching,
Touched but far apart.
(don’t look down, you’ll lose your heart)
Sometimes everything comes together. The two notes, like the tightrope walkers, over the chasm suggested by the poem. Puns on touching (*sings* feelings) and being touched (by the gods). Puns on losing your heart.
If the tightrope walkers ever touched, they’d fall. (In this world they aren’t very good tightrope walkers)
