The Lovers

They dance huddled close to one another

In the darkness in the light

Swirling around each other, melding here, tearing apart there


One for the need

The inexorable entwining that gives it life, form


To deprive

Hatred feeds without the knowing of it

Without the other, it simply isn’t – so it feeds

Entrapping in every action

It is the aggressive, vigilant, pugnacious one


Gorging itself on the other simply for the doing of it.


Love is the passive one, the silent calming

Releasing with every move, every step

Without the other, it simply is – satisfied

Love feeds because it knows

To nourish


One silhouette gives way to two, then again

One pulls away to be caught at last by the other

One to capture and destroy; the other to release and rebuild

The flux, the fluidity,

the dual sine wave


As the two dance in the light in the dark

pencil: Something pulls at the heart and then distracts and makes it not pull. There is a urgency a haste to read and rally at the schizophrenic mind. But the schizophrenic mind is never sane and it is very unrelenting and not reliable. The images come and go and there is not much one can speak to someon...
