Love Tug of War

Come and be a part of me, now conjoined Our lives meshed relentlessly caught Netted forever in daily favours we appoint In constant debt to save love's abort Entity rules written on parchment ethereal Compile acumen requirements Tolerance adopts compassionate interior Faith pledge beckons kindness Independance threatens from near corner Sinister as demon intending to leap Reports a lost opportunity to love coroner Solitary plight, pride intends to keep Conscious strive for linking brings prosper Combined denotes concerned Response an innate component longed for River of reciprocation yearned Innoculated beneath doctrine of obligation Committed beings tread carefully Self derived bliss retains a vapid formation Of solace seen in together revelry 1st November - torn in concept of tug of war demanded by needing others as much as I rely on myself

Hi Sigrid reminded me of Natalie Imbruglia Torn, I can feel your independence struggling with outside influence, tug of war, very difficult to go it alone, yet sometimes hard to trust others, so much B.S. out there, beautiful complex poem, reflects my life perfectly cheers David

A wise man once said: 'If I am I and you are you, then I am really I and you are really you. But if I am not I and you are not you, then I am not really I and you are not really you.'... The eternal 'tug-of-war' between independence and dependence in love and war. Thanks for the provocative penning, Sigrid. Best always, Gershon

... Like and despise you for providing that mind twisting wisdom...! Totally the concept I am taking on board for the first time!! Cheers for your much appreciated support, Gershon.
