My Lifelong Love Affair
I knew her right back when
I first opened my tiny eyes
inside the nursing home room
that was filled with my first cries
She has that special quality,
much like an inescapable charm.
Wonderfully mysterious are her ways,
Unpredictable enough to cause harm.
Her tumultuous nature causes friction but also makes her canty.
Our relationship is like a roller-coaster ride,
with ups & downs aplenty.
She breaks with nonchalance,
the most carefully laid-out of plans,
She is an exquisite lover,
with firm & demanding hands.
I loved & hated her ...
