Within our twisted logic

hide a few unsightly details

One being

that we are two sides of the same coin

Each wanting, needing

Complete devotion




I will not suffer your conditions

any more than you will suffer mine.

Whether I come to you or you come to me…

I refuse to negotiate for what is my rightful place

at the head of your table.

At the top of your list.

My Libra vanity

Your swollen Capricorn pride

demand all or nothing

A stalemate.



At some point

We may be more humbled

more willing to compromise

Someday we may meet again

Somewhere, perhaps…

in the middle.
