Different Hearts, Beat on Different Strings

How different we are
And in the way we act
In love and romance
A heart filled pact
It can start out so good
To a thunderous applause
And fall by the wayside
Just because
Corners are turned
Sometimes we go the same way
And sometimes round the same corner
We can go slightly astray
At the start of it all 
To the table we bring
But somewhere along the road
Different hearts, beat on different strings

Oliz, it's lyrics from a track by 'Rush' a Canadian Rock Band. My heart, with another's heart have different beats on the same string, and the tune played is wonderful as my recent holiday graced us with the tune. Our said hearts will always remain on the string found. Hugs forever little one, James xxx

Love the sentiments here. That is somewhat the spice in marriage. Each person has their own gifts and interest and then brings that in to be shared in some way.. Nicely done Rhyme. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara
