dVerse Quadrille #114


the push and pull
the up and down
the rise and fall
the kiss the slap
the pain the cheer
the deafened ear
the birth the death
tears for us bereft
a prayer a curse
to hurt to heal
lonely days
and hearts grief-stricken

  4. There is definitely the pull in this piece Misky.

  6. I really like the repetition and use of opposites.


  7. Life is filled with opposites and we are caught in the field between
