Opposites Don’t Attract

The difference between us is our mixed expressions.
Like if you add us together, there’s no solution.
For this is like a coordinate plane.
The odds of our love lasting, is a low probability.
One, three, six, nine,
That’s just fine.
He was like a dollar, green and long.
With 100 cents, you thought he could never go wrong.
But now he’s worth a penny, easy spent.
Copper brown, and worth one cent.
He was just an equation ready to be solved
Now he’s left for her, no value, no point, and unsolved.
Opposites don’t attract.
And equations aren’t always exact.
You have to make a negative point somewhere on the graph.
It cant always be positive.
