Elsewhere in time
Records play our favourite songs
Hands meet
We kiss sitting in shadows –
Our eyes lost in each other’s soul
Searching for an idea
As we walk the way of love.

Letters were written
Never seeing a mailbox
But creating the book
That is our relationship …
Until the sympathy ran out
Leaving us only with our love
And the battle that is marriage.

© G.s.k. ‘15

Sympathy constitutes friendship;
but in love there is a sort of antipathy, or opposing passion.
Each strives to be the other,
…. and both together make up one whole.  Samuel Coleridge

I found this quote at The Muscleheaded Blog and decided to use it to “Wordle” a poem ….

  1. Love creative concepts.So clever using that quote and seamlessly using the words. Excellent work. It is so refreshing ,reading reality concepts like marriage being a battle…Of course it is….unless you are comatosed:)


    • And I’m not comatose, but a fugue wouldn’t be half bad from time to time … Thanks Cressida for your fantastically articulated comment … lovely to see why someone likes the work one’s done … 🙂


  2. The book of our relationship – what a fantastic notion…when you know someone and love them it can perhaps remain unspoken but still said…the battle of marriage..hmm..good luck with that one if it applies 😉


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
