Similarities overlap, differences strengthen

Come here I whisper;
Stand still he breathes.
I want to fixate on his features,
searching for our similarities.

Love is so easily
lost in translation.
Delving into maps,
ambiguity offers traps.

Come here I whisper;
Stand still he breathes.
He wants to search my features,
then caress away all anxieties.

I recognise there is strength
in all of our differences.
And such sweet comfort
in the many ways we overlap.

Before, I was lost
in love’s translation.
It was a foreign language;
a disjointed conversation.

I felt want vs need: there was
a whine in what I said; over-reaction
in what I did; collisions with chaos;
an aching sense of dissatisfaction.

I was building glass towers
in my writing. See me, see me.
Or ignore my background image,
superimpose your own reflection A_hole

But now, I build my days properly.
Tactically sound is the description.
That hope is your breath on my neck,
My Paul, hope is our shared conviction.

Similarities overlap, differences strengthen

Artist's Description

Coldplay – Trouble
Oh no, I see,
A spider web, it’s tangled up with me,
And I lost my head,
The thought of all the stupid things I said,
Oh no what’s this?
A spider web, and I’m caught in the middle,
Oh I turned to run,
The thought of all the stupid things I’ve done,
And oh, I never meant to cause you trouble,
And oh, and I never meant to do you wrong,
And oh, well if I ever caused you trouble,
Oh no, I never meant to do you harm.
Oh no I see,
A spider web and it’s me in the middle,
So I twist and turn,
Here am I in my little bubble,
Singing out, oh I never meant to cause you trouble,
Oh, I never meant to do you wrong,
Oh, well if I ever caused you trouble,
Oh no, I never meant to do you harm.
They spun a web for me,
They spun a web for me,
They spun a web for me.
