Me And You - Poem by Arta Krasniqi

We are like water
Only you are a waterfall
Your stream is restless and loud
And I am a small creek
Calm and disturbed only
By leaves that rarely fall.

    Your opening line made me think the two of you were almost identical both being composed of the element of water.
    Was I ever startled by the differences between you two revealed in the specific images of water each embodies: You are both streams but his is restless and surges forward to fall as a loud waterfall; your is a gently flowing stream, going nowhere in silence, with the rare leaf falling on its unruffled surface. I can only conclude you are telling him, emotionally we are so different your energy would disturb the quiet I need and seek, and those qualities in me would leave you bored, or at least anxious for something b-i-g to happen. But what respect you show for these personality traits. The imagery shows your acceptance of different, even contradictory persons.
