When Like Poles Attract

by Admin on



We lay still back to back

Silence resounding like every other day

Minds woven, tête-à-tête

Yet looked each other not eye to eye

Nor could we;

Close beings miles apart

Views more opposing than a word’s antonym

United we must lie, divided we’ll stand

A simple hug we cannot afford

Non-celestial audible invisible duo that we are

Seeing everyone but each other

Twice the appendage, half the mileage

We’d split and get going,

But that might just be our undoing!

It’s not what you think,

Read again and let it sink.
