You and I


You and I
As unlike eachother as the Sun and moon
Both attracting and repelling

Us
Odd and deformed when together
Perfect when apart

Together
As magnets we are
Bipolar as such

We
A combination which separates
Deficient without help

So alike are we
When together we fight
Not just us, but all
Yet without you and I
I am nothing

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
