She Is My Otherness

And is true she is my otherness
But not my alter ego as you may think,
I am her strength, but she is my weakness
I am her herculean device, but she is my Achilles hill,
I am her weapon of life, but she is my boomerang,
I am her riches but she is my poverty,
I am her wisdom, but she is my folly
I am her public dignity, but she is my public shame
I am her solution, but she is my challenge,
I am her peace, but she is my troubles,
I am her light but she is my darkness
I am her love but she is my punishment,
I am her purity, but she is my filthiness
I am her decency, but she is my indecency,
I am her Napoleon, but she is my Josephine,
I am her Adam, but she is my Eve
I am her life but she is my death,

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
