Lilac Wine

Why do opposites attract ?

This is why in darkness, you reach out for the twinkling taunt of stars although dying embers of dead suns will singe, and no matter how hard you try to hang on to the edge of sensibility, you are but metal to its magnetic inevitability.

Because you need a voice that syncs unspoken thoughts. Because the antidote to caution can only be administered by one not yet infected by second-guesses and sound reason.  Because the breath of life has to be lived, and cannot be taught. The way that cold hearts need warm hands to hold, beautiful things are uncaged when logic wars with abstract feelings.

Why do opposites attract ?

Because raw edges complement soft curves, and bravado is empty without the strength of vulnerability. Because the flutter of soaring dreams need anchors of reality and in the way that forbidden fruits are sweeter, there is a sparkling allure in the things that are difficult, even impossible.

Why do opposites, attract ? 

“If you will look about you (which most people won't do)," says Sergeant Cuff, "you will see that the nature of a man's tastes is, most times, as opposite as possible to the nature of a man's business.” - Wilkie Collins
