Opposites Attract


We started on different paths and diverse ambitions,

Truly determined to stick to our grand plans,

Feet held tight on the ground.


We initiated that tentative but irresistible meeting,

Bound together with forbidden undercurrents,

Colliding as destiny played poker.


We were a fusion of a sunny day and a stormy night

Attracted like two opposite poles of a magnet,

Undeniably lost in our cosmos.


We kept fueling the explosive fire scorching our souls,

Gasping for breath in the dense combustion,

Insane in our abandoned triumph.


We saw the mystifying rightness of our coming,

Shocked by the beauty of our chemistry,

Complete in the harmony of souls.


We still refuse to agree on the smallest of matters,

Effortlessly of the same mind on the big ones,

Weaving a tapestry for our future.


We overcame a flurry of confusions and misgivings,

Seeking courage to embark on an adventure,

Discovering it within each other.


We now dance to the greatest songs of love and life,

Your smooth moves guiding my two left feet,

Holding tight for infinity and beyond.

Well…. I like life 🙂 How did you meet your “significant other”? What’s your story?

  1. I completely agree that opposite attracts, even though I don’t know the exact reason. May be the opposite ones ignites a spark in our lives which ignites our heart’s desire to achieve something.
    Your poem about meeting the significant other is expressive and intriguing. 😀

  2. I think you know my story of meeting my husband in 1971 when we were teenagers, seven months before his family moved 700 miles north. He found me again 39 years later. We are opposites in some personality traits, but, as you wrote, we agree effortlessly on the big matters. A good recipe, I believe. 🙂
