The two of us could not be more different

You are fun, happy, carefree,

while I am the exact opposite

But it is possible that this all stems

both from idolizing you,

and beating myself down


I know I am hard to love,

I come with a mind and a body that are evidence of this

And why the hell would you choose a hard love

when you could easily find one so much simpler


I don’t know how I feel about the phrase “opposites attract”

In this moment I desperately wish it were true,

because that would mean it didn’t matter

if we were opposites

I can’t help but wonder how long that attraction lasts, though,

between two people with nothing in common


I can’t help but think that

our opposites attract for now,

but the magnitude of it will wither

when you come to realize how much it takes from you

to love me

and then it will be all too easy to tell me,

“we have nothing in common anymore”


But my most pressing thought is this:

are we the type of opposites that work,

or the type of opposites that don’t?
