The odd couple



It’s eerie loving you
They couldn’t say we’re alike
Summer and winter

How guarded we are
Like two dogs sniffing at first
Before bite or play

We talk, profess love
Translucent conversation
Like spider and mate

Life is exiting
No, I can’t do without you
But can this love last?

  1. As there does not appear to be a lot of time left, it really does no matter if love lasts ...day by day is the way to go.

  2. I vote for lasting. Nothing says you can't last even if you started off with a bite.

  7. I'd be pressed to say that this is the sort of thing that doesn't last, but I'm something of a cynic when it comes to romantic love. It's all too good while its happening, then when it goes bad, it goes nuclear.
    Speaking of which, here's my post!
