One and the Other

They were the same, yet so very different. One desired the Other, the Other hated the One. But One knew this, One even hated Other back. But still One would try to be with Other.

But can it happen? to alternate love and hate influenced merely by proximity. It is self-destructive to a relationship. One had all disagreed that opposites attract and even though One was teh same as the Other, One knew it could never be with the Other, whom is one so different than One. One seeked to find if the Other could ever desire One. One’s soul was crushed.

The Other hated One. The Other made fun of One. The Other would never be loving to One. One was about to destroy itself when One realised. What does this change? It changes nothing. One was too afraid of One’s own love and hate for the Other that One would never have acted anyway. Nothing means anything if you do not act on it. So if One never acted, One could never be rejected and One could feel for the Other the same One always had. Proximity can be controlled. One believed now that One would be fine. One had full control over One’s actions and therefore nothing could come of the feelings for the Other.

But One was wrong. One tried and tried to stay away. One slowly lost One’s own hate for the Other. One no longer hated the Other. One loved and lusted for the Other. One had succumbed to emotion. One must sastify One’s own emotions or suffer in the prision of One’s self-imposed isolation from the Other.

Of these events the Other knew not. The Other continued on The Other’s own life. The hate grew within the Other, the hate for the One. it is how it is.

hiding behind mockery.
behind hate and disdain
lurked the hidden passion
the loving nature
the emotion to which all others are dwarfed
Lie to yourself long enough
and you believe
Lie to others short enough
and they believe
The balance is fragile
the equilibrium of truth and false
of love and hate
can be destroyed
a touch of the hands
a breath of the lungs
and One loses balance with the Other
they can never be on the same side of the scales
equal or opposite
these options are the only ones.
It is not designed for sport
nor fun
it is not designed at all
it is merely the truth of the falsity that we live our lives by.
