Equilibrium - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

I went to meet you, as I have met you before
Exploring you as a stranger
I did not mind to be your back door
Satisfying my personal hunger for danger
You are the one that I wanted all along
The temptation to finally have you was strong

You took what I offered without second thought
Playing along I made available what you bought
I know it was like a financial transaction
Your body for my wanting as a subtraction
We played - knowing we were wrong from the start
But it's too late now because we have each other's heart

I hate you for what you are doing to me
I love you for finally setting me free
You hate me for the way I invaded your mind
You love me because you are no longer blind
Together we are going strong
A concept I considered before to be wrong

My happiness surrounds your satisfaction
You're right there for me in every interaction
Encounters are passionate one after another
But forever we never promised each other
Still - I always know at the end of each day
We meet right here - just as we never stray

You get me and your nature I understand
I'm o.k. to be the ostrich with the-head-in-the sand
You let me explore the soft feminine things
So we're even and without any strings
You say that your love for me is unbearably strong
And I finally know where I belong
